An explosion in Sinai was reported at a depot along the Egyptian natural gas pipeline that normally supplies Israel with gas, Army Radio reported Saturday.

The attack on the pipeline was the third this month and the fifth since the beginning of 2011. It also followed a shootout between Egyptian security forces and apparent Islamic militants on Friday.

The pipeline was not currently supplying Israel with natural gas due to damage incurred from the previous blasts.
