Exploded pipeline delivering gas from Israel to Egypt


In the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula, sabotage occurred. A branch of the gas pipeline was blown up, through which Israeli fuel enters Egypt.


This was reported by the Qatari television channel Al-Jazeera.

Channel sources claim that the sabotage act took place in the area of ​​the Egyptian city of Bir al-Abd, which belongs to the North Sinai governorate.

Although none of the terrorist organizations claimed responsibility for the bombing, suspicions fall on representatives of local Bedouin clans. The fact is that such sabotage is far from uncommon; it has happened periodically for about ten years and is taking place against the background of local Bedouin dissatisfaction with the lack of income from gas transit through their territory. Radical Islamists may be involved in the explosion.

Sources in the Egyptian security service told the Chinese Xinhua News Agency that the facility was attacked by a group of armed people of at least six people whose faces were masked. They committed sabotage.

A thick cloud of smoke was observed above the scene of the accident. Xinhua claims that authorities shut off the gas supply and put out the fire.

The head of the Israeli Ministry of Energy, Yuval Steinitz, said that he did not know anything about the explosion, and information about the sabotage was checked by employees of his department and other organizations.

        I don’t know if it’s fake, or is it true that the Palestinians nearly bombed a research center in Dimon that was attacked by air. https://free-news.su/proisshestviya/42665-xamas-atakoval-yadernyj-centr-v-izraile

          And why not consider the Jews themselves as terrorists?
          Of course, in the media of the Israeli media criticism of the deal on the supply of Israeli gas to Egypt is not allowed, but opponents of this deal exist there.
          For example, at the beginning of 2018, a large gas field was found in Egypt. Then there was a rumor that Egypt would refuse to supply Israeli gas. If archives on the Internet about these rumors are raised (mid-summer 2018), then there are comments from Israel that welcomed this refusal.

        Perhaps this is a response to the undermining of the Syrian submarine pipeline.

      There are no Palestinians in the Sinai. Egypt blocks Gaza much harder than Israel. Bedouins associated with ISIS are hooligans in Sinai. Two Bedouin tribes (hereditary smugglers) swore allegiance to ISIS in 2015, when their people died in skirmishes with the Egyptian army. Now these are paying other Bedouins for various sabotage.

        Someday the patience of the Egyptian military will end. In fact .... the population of Egypt is just over 100 million people, the population of the North Sinai governorate and the South Sinai governorate does not reach 500 thousand people. They will send there for the re-education of thousands of 300 small criminals and set them conditions for parole, they will quickly teach these Bedouins to love their homeland.

          Sinai by agreement at Camp David between Egypt and Israel
          - demilitarized zone.
          When the Bedouins joined ISIS, Israel agreed to enter there
          Egyptian regular army, including tanks. Before that, formally
          there were only border guards guarding Hamas in Gaza (in fact -
          infantry).

      Where are the Palestinians from? Yes, most likely Bedouins. It seems their territory. Those for money will do anything yes And blow up, and dance and dance yes I wonder how they have not yet dismantled this pipeline and don’t pass it to the ferrous metal winked But who paid them, an interesting question

    such sabotage is far from rare
    In the modern world, unfortunately sabotage, terrorist attacks are becoming commonplace. And yet, the "deal of the century" probably also begins to play a role. At Trump, that is not a deal, there is a lot of noise, but almost 0 at the exit, but this time the firemen threw pretty much firewood into the Middle East bonfire.

      Well, it’s unlikely with TP, Comrade Erdogan knows how to count money and will not allow reputation costs. But for the cessation of ukro-transit is a good reason, if this happens there after the introduction of SP-2.

    Gas injection into Egypt continues: there was no explosion
    Israeli officials have denied reports from Arab media that unidentified militants attacked and damaged a pipeline in northern Sinai through which Israeli natural gas is delivered to Egypt.
    Comments from corporate partners operating the Israeli Leviathan gas field also say that "there was no damage to the EMG pipeline connecting Israel and Egypt. The gas flow from Leviathan to Egypt continues as normal." Companies include Israeli Delek Drilling and US-based Noble Energy.

    that the object was attacked by a group of armed people of at least six people whose faces were hidden by masks. They committed sabotage.
    It would be strange if the object was attacked by six masked people, and the diversion would be committed by others. Who is writing this? It seems that, "A customer with a wallet of money entered the store. He made the purchase." laughing
