[quote:Anonymous Coward 946736:MV8xMDQ1MDMzXzE2NTU4MzY3XzVBRkRDM0Yz] [quote:lime flavoured] Israel's reaction to this will be interesting. [/quote] Nothing will happen. This has happened another time and supposedly "Al Qaeda" was behind it. http://www.forbes.com/feeds/afx/2005/08/19/afx2186110.html Al-Qaeda-linked group claims Aqaba, Eilat rocket attacks 08.19.2005, 10:11 AM DUBAI (AFX) - An Al-Qaeda linked group has claimed responsibility for the rocket attacks near US warships moored in the Red Sea port of Aqaba and into a neighbouring Israeli resort. The group, the Al-Qaeda Organisation in the Levant and Egypt, said in a statement posted on an Islamic website that its guerrillas fired 'three Katyusha rockets' on the Aqaba and Eilat ports. A Jordanian soldier was killed when unidentified attackers fired three rockets near US warships moored in the Red Sea port of Aqaba and into a neighbouring Israeli resort. The US military confirmed the attacks but said there had been no American casualties. A total of three Katyusha rockets were fired from a warehouse in Aqaba, landing in the port, a site close to a military hospital and next to the airport in the nearby Israeli resort of Eilat, Jordan said.

Two rockets reportedly fired from Egypt have landed in Jordanian territory.
Israeli military sources told the BBC the rockets were fired from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and aimed at Israel.
Other reports suggest that rockets were fired at Israel from Jordan but did not clear Jordanian territory.
One rocket landed near the Jordanian city of Aqaba, the other splashed into the sea. No casualties were reported.
