Rockets Strike Cities in Israel, Jordan : NPR

 Rockets Strike Cities in Israel, Jordan : NPR:

"Several rockets were fired early Monday toward the Israeli resort city of Eilat, one of which landed in neighboring Jordan and injured at least four people.
Jordanian authorities said the rocket exploded on a main street in front of the Intercontinental Hotel in the Red Sea port of Aqaba, Dale Gavlak reported for NPR. The strike wounded two taxi drivers and destroyed one of the cabs. The other two injured were workers.
Israeli media reported that three of the five rockets fired at Eilat landed in the Red Sea while two hit open spaces. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld confirmed that the blasts were caused by rockets, but said no one was injured in Eilat.
The volley of rockets marked the second such attack this year. In April, a similar strike targeted Eilat and Aqaba, popular tourist destinations. Most of those rockets fell into the sea near Eilat, but one hit a warehouse in Aqaba. No one was injured.
Authorities in Israel and Jordan said they believed those rockets were fired from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula."
