Islamic State claims responsibility for attack on Syrian gas pipeline
CAIRO, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Islamic State has claimed responsibility for an attack on a gas pipeline at Deir Ali power station in Syria, according to a statement published on Saturday on its affiliated Telegram channels.
Syria's electricity minister said an attack on one of the gas lines at Deir Ali station led to an electricity outage that affected the capital Damascus, its outskirts and other areas, and that repair work is ongoing, the state news agency (SANA) reported on Friday.
Reuters doesn't have any more to report other than the assurance the repairs continue apace and power is expected to be restored asap.
