Jordan investigating possible rocket attack

“An explosion struck an industrial area in the Red Sea port of Aqaba on Thursday, and authorities were investigating whether rockets had been fired toward the area, a senior Jordanian security official said Thursday.

Government spokesman Nabil Sharif said only that a refrigerated warehouse was damaged in the Aqaba explosion but no injuries were reported.

Police found the remains of a Katyusha rocket and were trying to determine the launch site and who might have been behind the attack, the security official said.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity while the investigation was ongoing, declined to say if the remains of the rocket were found at the warehouse or elsewhere in Aqaba.

Residents reported hearing at least two early morning explosions.”
