Egypt officially denies rockets were fired from Sinai
A senior Egyptian official on Tuesday rejected allegations that the rockets that struck the Jordanian port of Aqaba and the vicinity of the neighbouring Israeli city of Eilat the previous day were fired from the Sinai Peninsula, DPA reported.
South Sinai governor Mohamed Abdel-Fadil Shousha told the German Press Agency dpa: "Let the media say whatever they want. The border between Egypt, Israel and Jordan is a region of mountains and it does not make sense to launch the type of missiles they are talking about."
One person was killed and five injured in Aqaba when the five rockets struck, though no injuries were reported on the Israeli side.
