The terrorist organization claimed responsibility for the incident through its telegram account. However, he did not provide evidence to support his claim. A similar incident attributed to the Islamic State occurred in Sinai earlier this year. Chevron: The gas supply continues as a series

 

 The Islamic State (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for an explosion of a gas pipeline connecting Israel and Egypt, the organization said in a statement issued tonight (Thursday). However, ISIS did not provide further evidence.

Another explosion attributed to the organization occurred in a gas pipeline between Israel and Egypt in February. According to security sources in Egypt, at least six masked gunmen then hid the explosives under a pipe in the town of Bir al-'Abd, in the northern part of Sinai. This pipeline carries gas to al-Arish, the provincial capital of northern Sinai, and to a cement plant in the center of the peninsula.

 Egyptian officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that following the explosion at the beginning of the year, large flames were seen in the area's skies, and authorities stopped the flow of gas to put out the fire. However, no Islamist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

For more than a decade, activists from the organization's Sinai district have attacked the gas pipeline from Israel to Egypt several times. In the past week, security officials have spoken out about the problem of governance in Sinai province, which has been reflected in a series of severe attacks against Egyptian security forces. It should be noted that Israel supplies gas to Egypt for domestic use and even for export.

The Chevron company responded: The gas flow from Tamar and Levitan continues as a series. There was no interruption in the supply of gas to our customers in Israel or in the region.
