Syrian air defenses fended off an Israeli airstrike overnight Thursday, state-run Syrian media reported.
“Air defense systems thwarted an [Israeli enemy] in east Aleppo,” the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said.
The air defense system downed several missiles before they reached their target, SANA added.
Israel has carried out hundreds of raids in Syria since the civil war broke out in 2011, targeting Iranian and Hezbollah forces as well as government troops.
The Israeli army rarely acknowledges individual strikes.
On August 3 it said it had used fighter jets, attack helicopters and other warplanes to hit Syrian military targets in southern Syria.
Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah warned shortly after that the group would kill an Israeli soldier for each of its fighters slain by Israel, after one of its combatants was killed in an Israeli strike in Syria on July 20.
