It said that the projectile missed a jet during a routine flight in Israel and that the plane completed its journey before the Israeli military "targeted the launcher that had fired" at the jet.

Israel's statement came after the Syrian state-owned television channel Al-Ekhbariya said one soldier had been killed and another injured in the attack in Quneitra province, which is adjacent to the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

"Our policy is clear - we are not prepared to tolerate any aggression against us, we will retaliate against it forcefully and decisively," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a video statement on Monday.

Israel and Iran exchange fire as tensions soar . BREAKING: Israel called out by IRAN and SYRIA at UN Council - Продолжительность: 12:53 The extended barrage of fire comes amid soaring tensions between Israel and Iran, rivals battling for regional influence, and less than two.

Last year, anti-aircraft fire brought down an Israeli jet returning from carrying out raids in Syria, prompting a wave of Israeli attacks against other targets there.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its raids in neighbouring Syria, though it has recently acknowledged hitting what it says are Iranian and Hezbollah targets there.

The Israeli air attack comes amid soaring tensions in the region between Israel's arch foe Iran and the United States.

The standoff has been simmering since US President Donald Trump withdrew from the landmark 2015 nuclear treaty between Iran and several major world powers.
