DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syrian state media is reporting that "foreign bodies" have entered Syrian air space from Israel in the country's south.

The late Saturday report on state news agency SANA comes a day after a similar incident that caused loud explosions in Damascus

SANA said Syrian defenses were activated and dealt with the incoming "foreign bodies." The use of the term indicates they may be unmanned drones.

SANA said "the foreign bodies" were coming from the southern region of Quneitra on the edge of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, also like the report Friday.

Israel does not usually comment on reports concerning its strikes in neighboring Syria, though it has recently acknowledged striking Iranian targets there.
