The drones were to target the Homs refinery, which is one of Syria’s two main refineries covering most domestic demand for diesel, heating fuel, gasoline and other products.

On February 4, Syrian Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Ali Ghanem said Takfiri militants had launched drone strikes against al-Rayyan gas field, the Ebla gas plant, the South Central region gas factory and the Homs refinery.

The Ebla gas plant provides local power plants with approximately 2.5 million cubic meters of gas per day.

On December 21, the same Syrian ministry announced in a statement that terrorists had targeted the oil refinery in Homs and two gas facilities, one south of the city and one in the desert to its east.
