Report: Saboteurs attack Egypt-Israel gas pipeline


www.ynetnews.com

Saboteurs blew up a pipeline that runs through Egypt's North Sinai and supplies gas to Israel, state television reported on Saturday, although it was not immediately clear what impact the blast had on gas flows.

"Saboteurs took advantage of the security situation and blew up the gas pipeline," a state television correspondent reported, saying there was a big explosion. He also blamed the blast on "terrorists".


Apparently the explosion was quite large.

No one hurt as far as I can tell...

But this will surely piss off some people in Israel... and rightly so.

Work of extremists taking advantage of the situation...

EDIT : Pic of the explosion

EDIT 2 :


Apparently, according to Al-Jazzera, it supplies 1/3 of the gas to Israel... so it's a big pipeline!

Edit 3 :

ProducerMatthew Al Arabiya Arabic: Two gas power plants in Sinai have been shut off following the pipeline explosion, a source says.


Edit 4 :

AlArabiya_Eng Sources confirm that non-Egyptians were behind the gas pipeline blast in Sinai

False-flag?

Edit 5 : UPDATE :

RT @AJELive: The Jordan branch of the Sinai gas pipeline was attacked, not the one to Israel, Israel radio says

Agent Provocateurs more likely.

the egyptian government is really trying its best at creating chaos and fear. this is going too far, screw the idea of people making their own destiny, send a number of black hawks there and it all stops. Egyptian leaders will always be someone's puppet, democracy or not, so why is the US pretending to be passive?

Yeah maybe this is Mubarak's move... you know... uniting the country against a foreign threat...to stay in power...



State TV quoted an official as saying that the "situation is very dangerous and explosions were continuing from one spot to another" along the pipeline.

Dangerous stuff.

And now this?

It's a classic Zionist move done many times before. They blow up the pipeline. then two or more sides say they need to go in to secure it. Then the Zionists say wait that's not fair to either side - let us send our Zionist controlled UN Peace Keepers in to protect it. And then the Zionists control it. Same old same old - yes it was done by Israel.

"Oh NO the Jews are without gas........,"

The pipeline to Israel is 100% fine, it was the pipeline to Jordan that was attacked

Israeli radio said the explosion damaged a pipeline to Jordan, not to Israel, but the supply to Israel was cut off as a temporary precaution.

I see we are once again back to blame the jews game... It could be Iran, Hezzbullah, Hamas etc looking to take adantage of the chaos.

These riots are supported by Iran, so there is no telling to what lengths they will go to push their agenda. As far as using a false premise to move stuff into the area.

Egypt has already notified Israel that the treaty for a demilitarized Sinai has already been broken. Egypt had to send in military units to quell protests in some towns in the Sinai. Egypt notified Israel of the move so it could not be misread as something else.

Whoa, lets hold phone on this one? Anytime there is an incident, everyone is quick to call it a false-flag perpetrated by some government on itself or some shadowy cabal. At present, Egypt is in flames, and security is deteriorating. In that situation, we are going to see crazy things. It could very well be anti-Muburak people or even Pro-Muburak supporters? Why would Israel want to blow up their own pipeline? If they did that an uptick in energy and gas prices would lead to protests there?

It has been alleged that Israel was involved in false-flags in the past, and most notably the USS Liberty almost being sunk during the Six-Day War. Anytime a bug farts in the Middle East it is immediately considered an Israeli or Mossad false-flag operation? Lets sit back and relax for a moment, and see what other facts come to fruition before we start calling this latest incident a false-flag. In the case of Israel and the unrest in Egypt, it is in their best interests to sit this one out, and silently support Muburak. He is their guy over there, and if they do anything rash it will spell disaster for them.Therefore, it is a good thing to sit this one out, and wait to see if Muburak's solution to not run for office in September stabilizes the situation in the short term. Fanatics taking over on Israel's doorstep would be devastating.

The Israelis can't afford to give anymore fuel to opposition by getting involved with this one. They have an uneasy alliance with Turkey culminating with the Gaza Flotilla Incident, Hezbollah has received significant power in Lebanon after they orchestrated the political crisis which led to the Hariri government collapse, and Syria and Iran are getting more and more friendly with each other. So, lets sit back and allow the facts to come in before we start mentioning the usual false-flag scenario.

Right now, we have a pipe line from Egypt to Israel shooting plumes of fire and smoke, it seems to be allegedly caused by sabotage, Egypt is in civil unrest, and that is the situation at present. As far as I am concerned and in my opinion, this trend of false-flag this and false-flag that is severely debilitating the conversation and analysis on a wide range of topics. Lets try to practice a little patience instead of blanketing every incident as some kind of false-flag scenario. Just my two cents.

Eh the Jews are thrifty. If they don't have gas to cook their meat, they will just eat it through a hole in a sheet.
Amirite guys!?

The situation here is totally different. and why did the government attack foreigners when it depends on tourism? The government itself too is divided from the inside and its interior minister has gone rogue.

Actually no, these riots aren't supported by Iran in part because Iran in the not too recent past has had to deal with lesser but similiar unrest by popular movements.

Iran is simply spinning the riots in a claim that they are happening because Muslim Fundamentalists would like a more Muslim oriented government.

In fact Israel is showing more public support for the rioters inside Israel than Iran is showing inside Iran.

Popular opinion in most nations goes to the average people on the streets protesting peacefully.

So if you take exception to the "It's the Jews crowd" as being premature and not very well informed, using Iran as the scapegoat basically shows about the same level of over all understanding and due dilligence in investigating.

There could be a dozen different factions behind the pipeline blast up to and including some 14 year old 'disgarding the contents of a huka'.

In all fairness Israel does have a well documented history of sabatoge inside of Egypt so if someone were going to investigate, they surely would not dismiss Israel out of hand as possibly being involved.

that makes no sense. so far muslim brotherhood have been peaceful and sensible enough to know that democracy is their no. 1 goal and not their pursuit for power.

The pipeline to Israel runs under water and skirts around Gaza. The flow of gas has been shut on the Israeli side for safety reasons. The terminal is in the port of Said and services both Jordan and Israel. Supposedly it was a gas "leak" however several security personnel said there was an explosion that set off the fire.

Hand me the plot thickener please, right next to the corn starch. Yeah, the one with the white horse on it.
