ISRAEL - Attack against an Egyptian pipeline

"Explosion of a pipeline supplying Egyptian Israel," announces the site daily. The pipeline, located in the Egyptian Sinai, was attacked on 27 April by an armed group. Following the explosion and to extinguish the fire, the authorities had cut supplies to Israel and Jordan. Egypt provides 43% of natural gas consumed in Israel, while Jordan generates 80% of its energy from the Egyptian gas.

This is the second attack against the pipeline in less than three months.
