Six gunmen in Sinai targeted the pipeline that carries natural gas from Egypt  to Israel and Jordan on Sunday, overpowering a guard and planting an explosive device before fleeing, The Associated Press reported.

The explosive device failed to detonate and was eventually defused by soldiers at the gas terminal in the village of El-Sabil near El-Arish, AP quoted an Egyptian security official as saying.

Last month, a bomb damaged the pipeline, halting the flow of natural gas to Israel and Jordan for more than a month.
