AMMAN - An explosion hit an oil pipeline near the town of Quraiya in Syria's eastern province of Deir al-Zor on Monday as Syrian troops began a military operation in the region, opposition activists said.

They said a bomb appeared to have been detonated near the pipeline, which runs to a coastal refinery on the coast, and smoke could be seen five km (three miles) away.
