Syria's oil ministry said on Saturday that firefighting teams managed to extinguish a fire in one of the tanks of an oil tanker off the coastal city of Baniyas after a suspected drone attack from Lebanese territorial waters, state media reported.

Iran's Arabic-language al-Alam TV said there was some damage to an Iranian tanker but no casualties. But Iran's Tasnim news agency, quoting "certain sources", said: "The accident happened to another vessel...and is not linked to a ship carrying Iranian cargo".

The Syrian human's right monitor has said that the vessel was Iranian and that it had arrived from Iran, AFP reported. The organization has yet to confirm more details.
