Un incendio ardió en una unidad de destilación en una de las dos refinerías petroleras de Siria hasta que fue extinguido, informó la televisora estatal.

Nadie resultó lastimado en el hecho en la Refinería de Homs, en la provincia de Homs, pero hubo daños a la refinería, indicó un funcionario de la instalación.

La causa fue una filtración de crudo en una de las estaciones de bombeo, reportó la televisora.

El hecho ocurre en medio de una cadena de misteriosos ataques contra buques e instalaciones petroleras en Siria. El país, ya desgarrado por una guerra civil, ha sufrido escasez de combustible en los meses recientes.

El director de la refinería Suleiman Mohammed relató a la televisora estatal que hay cuatro unidades de destilación en el lugar.

Además de la refinería en Homs, Siria tiene otra cerca del poblado costero de Banias. Ambas son de propiedad y de administración estatal.
