I doubt we could damage them but we should be able to deflect them or prevent them from accessing mankind's Earth's atmosphere.
My reasoning is:
Firstly, if they physically travel through space then they must have a means to detect obstructions they're headed toward at least as fast as
they're traveling toward them (I'd expect faster). Suppose they travel close to or faster than the speed of light (as far as we know, we can't
travel at the speed of light but were we able to skip-over the speed of light then we might be able to travel faster than it. Electrons skip points
of acceleration so it is possible to skip but I don't know what the limit might be) then we wouldn't have anything fast enough to hit a UFO without
it being able to dodge our projectile. Wouldn't matter how many we fire because it would likely know the projectiles' presence before we fire
Secondly, assuming a UFO physically travels through space then it must have a physical presence. All physical presence has and is affected by
electromagnetic force (strong and weak), it must be possible to manipulate any physical object by the application of electromagnetic force even if the
frequency of polarity change has to be constantly altered. (Wonder if we could drag one down this way?)
So I think, deflect one, yes; tractor-beam one down, possibly; shoot one out of the sky, very doubtful.
