Iran’s gas supply network damaged by two explosions: government says it was an act of sabotage

Iranian Oil Ministry on Wednesday he said that two explosions caused the rupture of gas pipelines in the provinces of Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari and Fars, which are located respectively in the west and south-west of the country. The consequence was a brief interruption of gas supplies in some areas of Iran, although the damage was contained. It is not yet known whether it was an act of sabotage and so far no group has claimed responsibility for the explosions: incidents of this type are not rare in Iran, also due to the lack of funds, the poor maintenance of infrastructure and the sanctions imposed in particular by the States United States and the European Union. Oil Minister Javad Owji said the ministry said it was an act of “sabotage and terrorism” and compared it to a series of unclaimed attacks on gas pipelines in 2011.

The problems related to internal security that Iran faces are many and concern the presence in the country of extremist groups, armed opposition groups and various separatist organizations. Arab separatists from the Khuzestan region, for example, have already attacked gas pipelines in the past, but not in these areas.
