Egypt gas pipeline to zionist israel, Jordan hit

An Egyptian pipeline supplying natural gas to zionist israel and Jordan has been damaged by a fresh blast, the last in a series of such attacks since February.

On Sunday, the pipeline came under attack, making it the 10th attack against the pipelines carrying gas to zionist israel since the Egyptian revolution earlier this year.

The blast took place five kilometers (three miles) south of the Mediterranean coastal town of al-Arish.

According to a statement by local officials, the attack was carried out with remote-controlled explosives “by unidentified assailants who arrived at the scene using four-wheel-drive vehicles.”

The gas pipeline was damaged, but no flames were seen as the gas flow has been halted since the last attack in November.

This is while no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks carried out since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak.

Egyptian protesters have recently called on the ruling military junta to use its forces against the zionist israeli regime instead of its own people.

Egyptian protesters want the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF), which took over power in Egypt after the February revolution, to immediately hand over power to a civilian government.

Protesters say the SCAF has continued with the decades-long, ruthless practices of the regime of ousted dictator Mubarak.
