WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Syria, which the U.S. State Department calls a sponsor of terrorism, announced Sunday it will join Israelis and other officials at this week's Mideast peace summit in Maryland.

Rather than sending its foreign minister, Syria said it would dispatch Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal al-Miqdad to Tuesday's conference in Annapolis, reports Syria's state-run news agency SANA.

Damascus' announcement comes less than three months after Israeli warplanes attacked a site in Syria reported to be a facility linked to nuclear weapons.
