An armed group attacked on Sunday a gas pipeline between al-Shamer Mountain power plant and Ebla Gas Factory in Homs countryside.

Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Suleiman Abbas, told SANA that terrorists attacked the gas pipeline and detonated it.

The minister pointed out that repair and maintenance teams headed to the area immediately to repair the pipeline and get it back to service.
