AFP : Blasts hit Egypt gas pipeline to Israel, Jordan
An Egyptian pipeline delivering gas to Israel and Jordan was hit by two explosions Thursday, Egypt’s security services and state media said, the seventh time it has been attacked by militants this year.
A first blast occurred around 1:00 am (2300 GMT Wednesday) 40 kilometres (25 miles) west of the town of Al-Arish in the north of the Sinai peninsula, a security source said.
A second unexplained explosion took place near a pumping station in the same sector, the official news agency MENA said, adding that the army was deploying in the region.
C’est très étonnant, cette habitude qu’on les gazoducs égyptiens à faire boum quand votre cœur fait boum.
