Al Qaida-tied insurgents hit gas pipeline to Israel for third time this year

CAIRO — Al Qaida-aligned fighters have again attacked an Egyptian natural gas pipeline meant to supply Israel.


Security sources said unidentified attackers believed to be linked to Al Qaida again blew up the pipeline from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula toward Israel and Jordan. They said this marked the third attack on the facility in less than three months. Israel receives up to 45 percent of its gas from Egypt.

"The pipeline has been heavily damaged and the gas was shut off," a security source said.

The sources said the attack, confirmed by Israel, took place on April 27 two kilometers from El Arish, the capital of the Northern Sinai province as Egypt has been demanding revisions in its energy supply contract with Israel and Jordan.

They said authorities were investigating the attack and crews were trying to determine the extent of the damage.
