DAMASCUS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- An armed group blew up an oil pipeline in Syria's northeastern Hasakah province late Wednesday, the state-run SANA news agency said Thursday.

An "armed terrorist group" blew up a crude oil pipeline connecting Tel Adas oil station to Abyad station in Hasakah, SANA said, adding that the explosion occurred in a valve room, resulting in a large fire due to the leaking of crude oil.

It said pumping operations were halted and valves were shut while firefighters were working to extinguish the blaze.

Another "terrorist group" abducted engineer Ayman Shaqouf, director of Tal a-Bayda oil station in Hasakah province, according to SANA.

A series of blasts have been targeting the Syrian energy sector lately to strangle the already-ailing economy.
