On February 5, a gas terminal exploded in the Sinai Peninsula. The Egyptian authorities originally reported that the catastrophe was caused by a leak. We now know that four masked terrorists were responsible for detonating a bomb inside the terminal.
The terminal delivers gas to Israel, Jordan and Syria. The main gas artery from Egypt’s Port Said diverts into two pipelines, one heading toward Israel, the other into Jordan. It would seem Israel would be the obvious target from among these three.
