Fuel oil washes away all traces

4337.jpegAnother act of terrorism took place on the Georgian railway. Unknown persons blew up the railway at the Senaki - Poti pass in Western Georgia.

According to the Georgian policemen, the explosion took place in the region of Samergelo - Zemo around 01:00 a.m. on Wednesday according to local time on the track of the passing train. 12 rail tankers containing oil products ran off the rails; some of the tankers leaked fuel. Fuel oil was spilled all around the place of the railway accident. According to preliminary information, the explosion was carried out with the use of tritol.


The accident entailed no victims; however, window panes were shattered in the nearby houses and power supply lines were damaged; about 150 meters of trunk were wrecked.

Railway explosions in Georgia have long ceased to be sensational.

Here is the line of events of the last several months.

On the night of June 2, a planted clock-operated bomb came into action on the railway in the same region of Georgia. The explosion was carried out with the help of hexogen and tritol.

It was heavy enough to shatter the panes in the houses along the railway. According to the railmen, if the explosion had happened two hours later, the passing passenger train would have been wrecked.

On September 6, there was a heavy explosion in one of the sections of the trunk railway in the Western Georgia. A passenger train was to pass there several minutes before the explosion.

It should be noted that this is the fifth explosion in the last months in the region of Samergelo.

A railway explosion in September was qualified by the Georgian special services as a terrorist act; however, the criminals were never found.

All these facts lead to numerous questions, for example, what purpose is pursued by those who launched the "railway war" in the Western Georgia?

In June, the police detained one of the local citizens of Zugdidi who was suspected of arranging explosions; however, his evidence was obviously provocative. According to a man who was at the place of the explosion, two unknown persons came up to him after the terrorist act and asked him to show the way to Abkhazia.
