BasNews reported earlier today that Khor Mor gas field in Chamchamall district had been targeted with a rocket attack. Sources soon confirmed the report without confirming any casualties or material damage immediately.
This was the third attack targeting the gas field within the past four days, for which no group or organization has officially claimed responsibility yet.
The attacks have not affected operations at the field, which is run by the UAE-based DanaGas. However, two people suffered minor injuries in the first attack reported last Wednesday.
