A blast struck the Al Arish-Al Qantara natural gas pipeline in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Thursday, three witnesses told Reuters.

They said flames and thick plumes of smoke rose from the pipeline, describing the scene from their vantage points in and around the city of al-Arish.

The scale of the damage was not immediately clear. Reuters could not immediately reach the authorities for comment.

The Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”] claimed responsibility for the blast on its Telegram channel without providing evidence.
