Gas pipeline feeding Ebla Factory goes out of service due to a terrorist attack

HOMS, (ST)_ The gas pipeline linking al-Shaer gas field and Ebla Gas Factory in the eastern countryside of Homs went out of service due to a terror attack.

The Syrian News Agency (SANA) reported today that “Terrorists had vandalized the gas pipeline which extends from al-Shaer field to Ebla Gas Factory as the pipeline went out of service.”

It indicated that “technical workshops at Petroleum Ministry started to work on fixing the gas pipeline in order to pump gas through it again over the coming hours.”

The gas pipeline which went out of service conveys 2.5 million cubic meters of gas daily to Ebla Factory and from it to the power plants.

Remnants of Daesh “ISIS” terrorists spread in some areas in the Syrian Badia “semi-desert” and they try to attack residential areas, vital facilities and military posts as army units pursue them to secure the Badia.
