For the thirtieth time, Arish natural gas pipeline was bombed Sunday by unknown assailants, leaving more than 10,000 houses in the city of North Sinai without gas supply, Youm7 reported.
Two gas stations and a bakery are out of order. A team from the public prosecution opened an investigation to pursue the perpetrators. No one has claimed responsibility for the explosion.
Since the January 25 Revolution, gas pipelines in Arish that feed Jordan and Israel have frequently been targeted. The latest explosion of the gas line was on Feb. 8.
North Sinai witnesses security turmoil as a series of “terrorist attacks” in the past two years have killed dozens. On Jan. 29, at least 30 police officers were killed in a series of attacks claimed by Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis.
