News outlets are reporting Sunday evening that Israeli warplanes attacked Iranian targets near Damascus, Syria.

The alleged attack appears to be in response to last Thursday's shelling of an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman, attributed to Iran.

Iranian militiamen were targeted in Sunday's strike.

Eyewitnesses reporting hearing explosions in the area and Syrian media said anti-missile systems were activated.
