A limited explosion has taken place in the gas pipeline in North Sinai's Sabika area, 10 kilometres west of Al-Midan, the Army Spokesperson said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement reported no injuries or losses have occurred, adding that an investigation is underway to determine the causes and circumstances of the incident.

The statement gave no information on whether the flow of gas along the pipeline was halted or not.

Targeting the pipeline has repeatedly caused a halt to gas exports to Jordan and Israel, the latter of which Egypt used to supply until April 2012.
