Militants in the Sinai have once again bombed the Egypt-Jordan gas pipeline, Israel Radio reported on Sunday.

The attack took place south of al-Arish and have apparently caused serious complications for gas deliveries to factories in Central Sinai's industrial sectors.

While it could not be confirmed who had carried out the attack, militants belonging to radicalized Bedouin tribes as well as jihadists belonging to al-Qaida and Islamic State affiliates in the Sinai have often targeted infrastructure vital to Egypt's gas exports.
