Blast hits oil pipeline near Homs
An explosion struck the main oil pipeline feeding a refinery on the western edge of Homs on Tuesday during fighting between rebels and army forces in the area, according to opposition activists. A video, which could not be independently verified, showed thick smoke rising from the pipeline which links oil fields in the east with the Homs refinery, one of two in the country.
Nader al-Husseini, an opposition campaigner, said, "The pipeline blew up overnight when fighting broke out after the Free Syrian Army launched concerted attacks against army roadblocks in the area."
