Owji: Israel behind gas pipeline plot foiled in unique operation

SHANA (Tehran) – Iran’s Oil Minister Javad Owji on Wednesday said Israel was behind the sabotage attacks on two gas transmission pipelines last week.

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of the weekly cabinet session, the minister added the Israeli conspiracy was thwarted in a unique operation in the mountainous and hard-to-reach areas in the shortest time possible so that there was no gas outage in any part of the country.

"The enemy intended to disrupt the household sector’s gas supplies in large provinces but failed as the Iranian technicians were fully prepared,” said Owji, continuing, “The enemy’s wicked act and plot was properly dealt with and the pipelines were repaired within two hours.”

Two explosions struck the gas transmission pipelines at around 1 a.m. local time on Wednesday (2130 GMT), hitting the lines in Borujen, western province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari, and Safa-Shahr, southern province of Fars.
