BEIRUT, April 4 (Xinhua) -- Unidentified people punctured oil pipelines crossing Lebanon's northern Akkar plain from Syria to oil installations in Beddawi-Tripoli with the aim of stealing and selling them, the National News Agency (NNA) reported.

The attack took place above a winter waterway between the areas of Dareen and Sheikh Ayash, where oil has been flowing in abundance, changing the color of the water, it said.

People in the area required the Energy Ministry to fix the oil pipeline in order to prevent pollution in the Great River (Nahr al-Kabir) while affecting agricultural lands and fisheries.

This is not the first time that unidentified people punctured oil pipelines. In March, 2020, the oil pipeline that runs from Iraq to Lebanon via Syria was damaged in the Wadi Khaled area as well. Enditem
