Syrian air defence intercepted several missiles fired during an "Israeli" air strike on Monday against targets near the capital Damascus, the official SANA news agency reported.
It did not give details of the positions targeted shortly before dawn but said the military "shot down a number of missiles before they reached their targets".
SANA described it as "Israeli aggression" carried out from Lebanese airspace.
Since the start of the Syrian conflict in 2011, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes in the country, targeting government troops as well as allied Iranian forces and fighters from Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, enemies of the Jewish state.
On April 20, SANA said Syrian air defences had downed Israeli missiles near the ancient city of Palmyra.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said the targets were "military posts for Iranian militias in the Palmyra desert".
That raid killed three Syrian fighters and six foreigners, according to the Observatory, which was not able to determine their nationalities.
Israel rarely confirms its operations in Syria but says Iran's presence in support of President Bashar Al Assad is a threat and that it will continue its strikes.
SANA cited a Syrian military source as saying that the country's air defences responded to Israeli missiles, “intercepting most” of them.
Syrian anti-aircraft defences on Wednesday intercepted a “heavy attack” by Israeli warplanes over the capital Damascus, state media said.
Syrian Air Defenses thwarted an Israeli attack on Tal al-Hara in southern Syria and shot down a number of them, Syrian state news agency SANA said early on Wednesday.
After targeting the outskirts of the capital Damascus, Israel "resumed its aggression and launched several missiles against the east of Quneitra province killing three people and wounding seven other soldiers", the official SANA news agency reported.
They were followed up and monitored by the security men after the first stopped on the side of the road, then the other followed him.
The Ministry stressed in a statement on Tuesday that its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
According to the data updated by the health ministry at 8am, the active cases declined to 1,63,816. With the fresh cases, the total tally climbed to 3,42,02,202, while the death toll climbed to 4,55,068 with 356 fresh fatalities.
