In a statement, it said it was "currently striking" the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Quds Force in Syria and warned Syria's military against "attempting to harm Israeli territory or forces".
The official Syrian news agency SANA reported earlier on Sunday cited a military source that reported the Syrian air defenses had confronted an Israeli aerial attack targeted at the country's southern region and "prevented it from achieving any of its objectives".
Syria's Pantsir and Buk air defense missile systems were used to shoot down Israeli rockets and knocked out seven of them. The premier said this move showed Israel's readiness to prevent Iran's efforts to entrench militarily in Syria.
An Israeli military spokesperson told the AFP news agency that the rocket was intercepted by its Iron Dome defence system over the northern Golan Heights, Syrian territory that Israel has occupied since 1967.
A military spokeswoman told AFP the rocket was sacked from Syria.
It said that the attack triggered Syrian air defense systems.
Israel rarely publicly confirms its strikes in Syria. According to Syrian state television, the attack was conducted from the airspace of Lebanon.
"This policy doesn't change, whether I am in Israel or on a historic visit in Chad".
