Syria says its air defences have opened fire on Israeli war planes which had entered Syrian airspace.
Israeli planes had "dropped ammunition" over desert areas of Syria, before being forced to leave, according to the official Syrian news agency, SANA.
Quoting a Syrian military spokesman, the official agency says the action took place "without causing human or material loss".

If Israeli planes were in Syrian airspace, they have every right to take them down.
Just like the Israeli's would if Syrian planes trespassed in their airspace.

Barring the account is a complete fabrication, it sounds something like this may have happened:
F-16's were laden with weapons in strike configuration. This severely limits the aircrafts agility.
Aircraft meet unexpected air defense SAMs. They drop their ordnance before reaching target in order to be able to take evasive action, and then high tail it out of there (sonic boom).
