AMMAN — The bombing of the Jordanian-Egyptian gas pipeline in Sinai does not affect the Kingdom, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, quoted a government source as saying on Friday.

The source told Petra that Jordan receives its gas supply through the Aqaba liquefied natural gas terminal.

Electricity generation stations are supplied by around 350 million cubic feet of gas every day from the terminal, Petra reported.

The Egyptian branch of the Daesh terrorist group on Thursday said it had bombed a pipeline that carries gas to the Kingdom and to a major industrial zone in north Sinai, AFP reported on Friday.

Security sources confirmed that attackers set off explosive devices under the pipeline close to Al Midan village in the north of the peninsula. They said the blasts did not cause any casualties.

North Sinai is a bastion of the “Sinai Province” group, the Egyptian affiliate of Daesh, according to AFP.

In a message posted on Twitter and signed by “Sinai Province”, the terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.

“By the name of God, not a drop of gas will reach Jordan until the caliphate gives its permission,” the statement said.
