ISIS Jihadis detonated on early Wednesday a main pipeline for supplying natural gas to the capital Damascus and its suburbs, cutting off electricity power in many districts.

The work of sabotage took place near the T-4 military airbase (90 km east of Homs) as the terror group seeks to deprive citizens loyal to the Syrian government from the basic needs of life.

In neighboring Iraq, ISIS militant has recently closed Ramadi dam gates, cutting off water to pro-government populations.

The pipeline is solely used to feed natural gas to the residential suburbs of Homs and Damascus, and has no military use whatsoever.

After capturing the ancient city of Palmyra, ISIS has seized a number of oil and gas fields in the area. The group controls most of the country’s oil and gas wealth, especially in the northeastern region, and uses the revenues to finance its activities.

This has the smell of U.S. special forces. May God do whatever is necessary to keep every single person from WHATEVER nation from entering it if they will harm Syria. May He severely deal with and take out every person operating in Syria who is harming innocent Syrians.
