Two rockets fired from Egypt landed in the southern city of Eilat and the adjacent Jordanian port of Aqaba early Thursday morning, according to initial reports. No casualties were reported.

Authorities are currently trying to locate their point of impact and determine the source of fire.
It was the first time in five years that the popular tourist resort was hit by a rocket.

In 2005 katyushas fired from Jordan landed next to the Eilat airport. At the same time two others narrowly missed a US Navy vessel docked at the nearby Jordanian port of Aqaba. No injuries were reported.

A group linked with Al Qaida claimed responsibility for the attack.
