A powerful explosion ripped through the Egyptian pipeline in northern Sinai Peninsula, which carries gas supplies to Israel, for the 15th time.

No casualties were reported in the explosion that took place to the east of El-Arish city in northern Sinai at the early morning hours of Sunday, July 22.

Most Egyptians do not favor the gas deal signed between the former regime of Hosni Mubrak and Israel. Many Egyptians charged that Israel was not paying a fair price for the Egyptian gas.

The consortium of Egyptian petroleum companies, which had signed the deal with Israel, recently terminated the deal with Israel for failure of the latter to live up to its commitments.
