Terrorist Attack Targets Key Gas Pipeline In Iran

Screengrab. Via X.

Early on February 14, a massive explosion ruptured a gas pipeline near the city of Borujen in the southwestern Iranian province of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari.

The roughly 1,270-kilometer pipeline runs from Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari up north to cities on the Caspian Sea. It begins in Asaluyeh, a hub for Iran’s offshore South Pars gas field.

Saeed Aghli, the manager of Iran’s gas network control center, told Iranian state television that a “sabotage and terrorist” action caused explosions along several areas of the line.

Meanwhile, the semi-official Mehr news agency said authorities were still investigating the cause of the blast at the “high-pressure” pipeline, although no casualties were reported. Footage on social media showed a massive fire lighting up the night sky near Borujen.

Iran produces about a billion cubic meters of gas a day and has some of the largest proven reserves in the world, at about 30 trillion cubic meters, as well as a large network of pipelines that also export gas to Iraq and Turkey.

There are no known terrorist groups operating in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari. Due to this, the possibility of an Israeli involvement in the explosion is high.

Israel carried out attacks in Iran in the past, but predominantly targeted its nuclear program as well as missile and drone production facilities.

Tensions between Israel and Iran rose in recent months as a direct result of the war in the Gaza Strip. Iran is the main backer of Gaza’s largest armed faction, Hamas. It also supports Hezbollah which has been launching attacks against Israel from Lebanon and the Houthis in Yemen who have been attacking Israel-affiliated ships in the Red Sea.

they are still looking into the matter and it specifically happened near the city of gandoman, south of borujen. it is indeed the main south-north artery that has exploded, not a minor branch.

can’t wait after 1- 2 days some rtds that claim they are “al-qaeda or daesh” claim responsibility for it. also, we still don’t know who “really” blow up nord stream pipeline… but i can tell you a few countries only use terrorism as a tool of war.

in several sources and in different contexts, different us authorities have admitted the nord stream attack. whether norwegians were involved is an open question. the accusations thrown at the ukrainians would be logical, but they have not had the skills. especially when in the usa the matter is granted on many levels.

Piipii

i believe that the usa was also behind this attack. either even as an implementer, but more likely as a designer at least. israel is another possibility, but these two are like shirt and ass. so both very involved, even if the final implementation was given to the local contact group.

90% of times the terrorist incidents in iran is done by the us and israel. ofc, they use cheap people like kurdish gangs, mek or moles in iran for their jobs.

they use them for political reasons to affect political policy, not even only in times of war. they frequently murder people in the way of their money schemes too, purely for personal profit and nothing else.

ya allah iran no action always trashtalk about destroy israel but no action. let others do dirty work. allah says iran no good. bunch of coward

CEO of Yapping

“always trashtalk” hmmm careful you giving away too much about yourself.

these attacks are pathetic and a sign of desperation. iran will send a crew and they’ll close the valve. then a crew comes out and within two weeks the pipeline is up and running again. they’re easily repaired these days.

so this is just a cheap and easy shot, but not effective in the aggregate.
