Several rockets were fired early Monday toward the Israeli resort city of Eilat, one of which landed in neighboring Jordan and killed at least one person.
Jordanian authorities said the rocket exploded on a main street in front of the Intercontinental Hotel in the Red Sea port of Aqaba, Dale Gavlak reported for NPR. The strike killed a taxi cab driver and reportedly injuring several other people.
Authorities in Israel and Jordan said they believed those rockets were fired from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
Jordan's Information Minister Ali Ayed strongly condemned the attack on its soil and vowed that the moderate U.S. ally would continue its fight against terrorism.
