Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian travelled to Oman on Sunday on the first leg of a regional tour, the ministry said, almost a week after a suspected Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus.

“Amir-Abdollahian is travelling to Oman as the first destination of his regional tour at the head of a political and parliamentary delegation. Bilateral and regional issues such as Gaza will be discussed,” the ministry said.

Suspected Israeli warplanes bombed Iran’s embassy compound in Syria on Monday in a strike that Iran said killed seven members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), including two senior commanders.

The United States is on high alert and preparing for a possible attack by Iran targeting Israeli or American assets in the region in response, a US official said on Friday.

Israel’s military has escalated airstrikes in Syria against the IRGC and the Iranian-backed Lebanese armed group Hezbollah, both of which support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Israel typically does not discuss attacks by its forces on Syria. Asked about the strike last week, an Israeli military spokesperson said: “We do not comment on reports in the foreign media.”
