Syria fired missiles at Israeli warplanes early on Friday after a series of Israeli air strikes inside Syria.

Russia's foreign ministry on Friday summoned Israel's ambassador to explain the activity - the first time Israel has been asked to do so since Russian Federation entered the Syrian war two years ago.

Syria and Israel engaged in the most serious incident between the two countries since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war six years ago overnight on Thursday, as Israeli Air Force Planes struck several targets in Syria.

While Israel has largely avoided getting sucked into the conflict directly, it has repeatedly struck Syrian territory, particularly targeting alleged Hezbollah weapons convoys.

The missiles triggered Israel's emergency sirens, which may have forced the army to issue a rare communique confirming the skirmish. "At no point was the safety of Israeli civilians or the IAF aircraft compromised", the IDF spokesman wrote.

The Syrian army chief of staff said they downed an Israeli military jet today and hit another one over the Bureij region near the border with Lebanon.

Liberman then warned Syria that should it attack Israeli planes in its sky one more time, "we will destroy those Syrian anti-aircraft systems".

While the Israel Defence Force (IDF) does not comment on the nature of its operations, Hezbollah, like Iran, is committed to the destruction of the Jewish state. Last April, Netanyahu confirmed that Israel had struck Syria "dozens of times", breaking with the policy of remaining quiet about involvement in its war-torn northern neighbor.

Iran-backed Hezbollah has been fighting in the Syrian war in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, and Israel has expressed concern over whether the war will result in Iran increasing its power in the country.

Israel seized most of the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed it in 1981, in a move never recognised by the worldwide community. A subsequent Israeli airstrike destroyed a vehicle carrying four militants, Lerner said.

"When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah and we have intelligence and it is operationally possible, we will act to stop it", said Netanyahu. "None of the aircraft was hit, but one of the missiles was intercepted north of Jerusalem by an Israeli missile defence system".
