The US condemned Monday's rocket attacks on Aqaba, Jordan and Eilat, calling the actions "deplorable," AFP reported.

US State Department spokesman Philip Crowley told reporters that the attacks seemed to be an attempt to sabotage peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

"At a point where we are hoping to see direct negotiations begin as soon as possible to address the core concerns, it's not surprising that you have others who are taking actions to try to inhibit that kind of progress," said Crowley.

He added that the US has "strong suspicions" about who is responsible for the attacks, but gave no further elaboration.
