BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – Syria’s oil pipeline in the eastern Mediterranean came under attack recently, state-owned Al-Ikhbariya TV reported.

According to the Al-Ikhbariya report, at least five oil pipelines were attacked over the weekend; however, no group has been blamed.

“We were informed yesterday about an oil leak off Baniyas. Specialist divers of the Syrian oil company investigated it and found traces of external damage on five pipelines,” the Syrian Oil Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

The city of Baniyas is home to one of Syria’s two oil refineries. The other situated in the city of Homs. Syria has been reportedly relying on oil shipments through tankers to its Mediterranean coast.
