In 2013, much of Syria was hit by a power cut after rebel shelling hit a gas pipeline during the country's civil war.
The blast at a pipeline outside Damascus caused a drop in gas supply to power stations, leading to blackouts across the country.
The oil minister, Ali Ghanem, said the explosion struck the line that feeds three power stations in southern Syria, calling the incident "a cowardly terrorist act". He said technical teams were already on the ground.

Almost a decade of fighting between the Russian-backed government and the opposition has taken a toll on Syria's oil and gas infrastructure.
In December, near-simultaneous attacks believed to have been carried out by drones hit three government-run oil and gas installations in central Syria. One of the attacks targeted the oil refinery in the central city of Homs. Islamic State lost its last territory in Syria in March 2019 but pockets of fighters remain. Global sanctions have choked off shipments to areas under government control, and most oil fields are now in the hands of the US-backed Kurdish forces, who seized them from the Islamic State in 2017.
