Israel said it had launched a major attack after its F-16 came under Syrian fire.
Israel has struck what it referred to as Iranian targets inside Syria in "large-scale" raids.
The operations come after an Israeli warplane crashed under fire from Syrian air defenses.
The events appeared to be Israel’s first direct engagement with Iranian forces in Syrian territory.
An Israeli F-16 fighter jet crashed Saturday in northern Israel after coming under "massive anti-aircraft fire" from Syrian forces, according to the Israeli army.
Israel struck targets deep in Syria and shot down an infiltrating Iranian drone, marking its most serious engagement in neighboring Syria since fighting there began in 2011
