Oil, Gas Facilities In Central Syria Came Under Coordinated Aerial Attack (Photos)

Support SouthFront

A coordinated attack targeted several oil and gas facilities in the central Syrian governorate of Homs in the early hours of December 21.

According to the state run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the Homs oil refinery, the al-Rayan gas station and a gas processing facility were all struck simultaneously.

The attack placed many sections of the targeted facilities out of service and caused several fires, which were put down immediately by the Syrian Civil Defense (the real one, don’t mix it with the so-called White Helmets). Syria’s Oil and Natural Resources Minister acknowledged that all the facilities sustained damage.

“The attack caused damage in some production units … this was a systematic and synchronous targeting of the oil sector, the three oil sites [were struck] at the same time and in the same way,” the minister, Ali Ghanim, said.

The SANA released several photos showing the damage in the Homs oil refinery, which is Syria’s largest oil processing facility.

Talal al-Barazi, Homs governor, revealed that the coordinated attack was “launched from air.” The official didn’t provide any further information.

A source familiar with the incident told SouthFront that the attack was carried out by armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The source confirmed that the direction from which the attack was launched was determined. However, he declined to reveal it.

Later, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack via its news agency Amaq.

Over the last year, several Syrian oil and gas facilities were targeted. Nevertheless, this attack on the Homs refinery and the other two facilities is the most complex and harmful, so far.

These are oil facilities. How do you wanna place air defense system on an oil facility?

Human kind is doomed

It didn’t occur to you that maybe there weren’t ANY AA units?

Most likely it was Israel. Always when the SAA steamrolls the terrorists, they get bombed by the Zionist Satani rats. What a coincidence!

Makeshift drones or rockets more like so take your pick, the Iranians disagree with you, they always claim Israel but not this time;

The Syrian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources says foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants have launched a barrage of rockets at the main refinery and two gas facilities in the ountry’s
central province of Homs, causing minor damage and disrupting production.

Wow then it was the Jihadis this time, but it doesn’t change the fact that the ISraeli behaviour to Syria get more aggressive every time they advance against the Jihadis.

If Israel wanted Assad gone, he would have dead long ago.

Israel as the culprit?

verner

israel israel, the illegal settlers in the illegal settlement called israel need to be taken care of, once and for all. the illegal squatters should be shown no mercy and must be sent post haste to their next diaspora of a minimum 5000 years!

Jake321

Well get fitted with that suicide vest and try to make that happen. Don’t forget to practice a lot at first.

verner

nah we’ll find you first and make your future bleak!

In the meantime, Saudi Arabian troops backed by the US have taken control of Syria’s largest oil field. And Israel levels yet another Iranian base with impunity.
