DJ Missile Attacks On US,Israeli Targets Kill Jordan Soldier
AMMAN (AP)--Unknown attackers fired at least three missiles from Jordan early Friday,
with one narrowly missing a U.S. Navy ship docked in a Jordanian port and killing a Jordanian soldier and another falling close to a nearby airport in neighboring Israel, officials said.
The attacks were believed to have been caused by Katyusha rockets fired from a poor neighborhood on the outskirts of Aqaba, a Jordanian Red Sea port 350 kilometers south of the capital, Amman, officials added.
The attacks come amid a time of tension in the region marked by Israel's withdrawal from the Palestinian Gaza and several attacks on Egypt's Sinai Peninsula during the past year, including the July 23 attack in Sharm el-Sheik.
Aqaba and Eilat are about 15 kilometers apart and located on either side the Jordan-Israeli border at the northern end of the Red Sea close to Sinai Peninsula.
Jordanian soldier Ahmed Jamal Saleh was
fatally wounded when a mortar sailed over a U.S. Navy ship docked in Aqaba and slammed into a warehouse, a Jordanian security official said.
The soldier died in the ambulance taking him to hospital, while another unidentified Jordanian was also wounded, the official added.
A Jordanian security official said another missile landed near a Jordanian hospital.
