It said its air defenses shot down one of the Israeli jets over what it called "occupied ground" and damaged another, according to Reuters.

As reported earlier, on March 2, the Syrian army said it had recaptured the ancient city of Palmyra from Islamic State for the second time in a year, with help from allied forces and Russian warplanes.
