Peres expressed his sadness over the attacks on innocent people on the Jordanian side of the border.

MK Uri Ariel (National Union) also reacted to the rocket attacks, that were reported to have been launched from Egypt's Sinai,saying that they require a clear and powerful response against the perpetrators.

"Before Egypt can host peace talks, it must act to eradicate terror within the country," said Ariel.

The rockets landed in the area around Eilat Monday morning, one of which injured four people in nearby Jordan, in front of the Intercontinental Hotel. One of the casualties was in serious condition, the other three were lightly wounded.



A second rocket also landed on the Jordanian side of the border, a third north of Eilat's hotel area, and two more in the Red Sea. The projectiles were Grad-type Katyushas, suspected to have been launched from the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
