Security sources and witnesses blamed unknown assailants for the explosion at the pipeline which supplies Israel and Jordan.

It is not yet known whether there were any casualties at the plant, which is owned by Gasco, a subsidiary of the national gas company EGAS.

Since former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February the pipeline has been repeatedly blown up by attackers believed to oppose to selling of Egyptian gas to Israel.

Egypt has been trying to renegotiate gas prices with Israel and Jordan amid charges of corruption.

The attack is the fifth act of sabotage at this year after four masked men blew up the terminal in July.
