Twin blasts hit Egypt gas pipeline: officials | The Raw Story Reason #2,154 why we shouldn't have a giant terrorist target running down the spine of our nation. I'm talking to YOU XL pipeline. CAIRO â€” Two explosions on Monday hit a pipeline which supplies Egyptian gas to Israel and Jordan, marking the 13th such attack in just over a year, security officials said. Six gunmen in an unmarked vehicle set explosives in two different parts of the pipeline, about 15 metres (yards) apart, one official told AFP. Witnesses said they heard two separate explosions, causing flames to shoot 20 metres (65 feet) into the air in the Al-Massaeed area, close to the town of El-Arish in north Sinai.
