The Israeli military said it carried out an air strike in Syria in retaliation for anti-aircraft fire from the war-torn country targeting one of its fighter jets on Monday.

"Earlier today, Syrian anti-aircraft systems fired at an IDF fighter jet during a routine flight in northern Israel," the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

It said the projectile missed and the plane completed its journey before "the IDF targeted the launcher that had fired" at the jet.
