DUBAI - Three rockets have hit the border area between Kuwait and Iraq, Al Arabiya TV reported early on Friday quoting diplomatic sources.

The Dubai-based channel said the Katyusha rockets did not target Kuwait's Mubarak Port which is under construction.

The $1.1 billion Mubarak port being built on the Bubiyan Island has been a subject of arguments between oil-producing Iraq and Kuwait, which share a small border.

Earlier the pro-Gaddafi TV channel Al Orouba had reported the rockets had targeted the Mubarak port. There was no immediate independent confirmation of the rockets being fired.
