Unknown armed groups have blown up a pipeline carrying oil from eastern Syria to a refinery in the western city of Homs, Press TV reports.

On Thursday, Syrian sources told Press TV that the attack was carried out by armed gangs that operate in and around the city.

Homs has been the major scene of recent unrest in Syria that originated in mid-March.

The Syrian government blames “outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.

Confessions by a number of Syrian rebels about foreign-sponsored plans to carry out armed operations and killing ordinary people as well as security forces prove that recent developments in the country are part of an attempt to incite a revolt in the strategic country neighboring the Israeli regime, aiming to overthrow the current government and replace it with a US-backed regime.
