One Jordanian killed in Aqaba missile strike (UPDATE)
One of the five Jordanians injured in the Grad missile that hit Aqaba Monday morning died, according to local medical sources, Xinhua reported.
The Jordanian, identified as Subhi Alawneh, was seriously injured earlier in the day when a Grad missile hit a main street at local time 7:45 a.m. (0745 GMT) on Monday in front of the Inter Continental Hotel in Aqaba.
However, he died Monday afternoon from the injuries he sustained, according to medical sources.
Four other Jordanians were injured in the missile strike, according to medical sources, who added they were in good conditions.
Two cars were also burned and financial losses occurred as a result of the missile.
Eye-witnesses told Xinhua that security forces were deployed in the area hit by the missile and prevented people from approaching.
The missile was fire from outside the Jordanian territory.
On April 22, a Grad missile was launched from outside the Jordanian territories and hit a warehouse in the southern governorate of Aqaba, causing an explosion.
Five rockets were also fired at Israeli Red Sea coastal city of Eilat on Monday morning, with no injures and damages reported. The Israeli media claimed the rockets were fired from Egypt's Sinai peninsula.
But an Egyptian security source ruled out the possibility of firing any rocket at Israel by Palestinian elements from the Sinai peninsula as the area is tightly controlled by the Egyptian security bodies.
