NISOC denies terrorist attack on Iran pipeline

SHANA – Iran’s National Iranian South Oil Company (NISOC) denied a reported news of a terrorist attack on an Iranian oil pipeline in the southwestern province of Khuzestan.

On December 30, the Washington Post reported that a Sunni jihadist group has claimed to have blown up an oil pipeline in Iran’s southern Khuzestan province, the scene of other attacks by Arab separatists.

The report said an online video posted by Ansar al-Furqan claimed the attack and showed what it described as a pipeline near Omidiyeh.

The U.S.-based SITE Intelligence Group quoted the video on Saturday as saying: “This operation was conducted to inflict losses on the economy of criminal Iranian regime.”
