In the Jordanian city of Aqaba, according to the Al-Jazeera news agency, there were a number of injuries and an unspecified number of people were transported to hospital as a result of an explosion in a closed US military area. Jordanian government officials confirmed reports of the explosion.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that three projectiles may have been fired from Jordan, with two mortars landing in the Hashemite kingdom and one Katyusha landing in Eilat.
No organization has as yet claimed responsibility for the two attacks. Katyusha rockets have been an important part of the Hizbullah terrorist organization arsenal in Lebanon.
