Asked about the rocket attack, a military spokesman said: "We do not comment on such reports."
Syrian television said Syrian air defenses had responded to a missile attack on the air cap base late on Monday night.
Israel has attacked Syrian army positions frequently during the conflict, as well as convoys and bases of armed factions backed by Iran and fighting alongside the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The air cap base was the target of a US cruise missile attack last year in retaliation for a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, including children, in the armed opposition town of Khan Sheikun.
It carried out air strikes in the early hours of Monday. Syria initially accused the West of being behind the bombing, after both the United States and France threatened to respond to the chemical attack, but they denied bombing al Qaeda.
