Gas pipeline between Iran and Turkey blown up, for second time

From RTT July 29:
The supply of natural gas from Iran to Turkey has been disrupted after an explosion damaged a section of the gas pipeline between the two countries, Iranian media said quoting officials on Friday.
From Fox News, today:
Turkey says an explosion at a pipeline has temporarily cut natural gas supplies from Iran.

The governor's office for Agri province, where the explosion occurred late Thursday, says Kurdish rebels are suspected of sabotaging the pipeline. The gas flow was immediately cut and no one was hurt in the explosion.
Looks like this is the new soft target of choice.
