A string of rockets have been fired into the narrow coast of the Red Sea, where Israel's resort city of Eilat and the Jordanian city of Aqaba are located.

One rocket hit one of Aqaba's main streets in front of a hotel, killing a taxi driver. Monday's attack also injured four other Jordanians, including a security worker of the hotel.

Israeli media, claim five rockets were fired at Eilat: three landed in the Red Sea and two in open spaces. No one was injured in the Israeli city. Security forces there, say the rockets were apparently launched from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptian security officials say a police investigation shows NO indication of that. Israel says the attack is aimed at destroying the peace process.

Mark Regev, Isreali Gov't Spokesman, said, "Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu spoke to the Jordanian king, and the president of Egypt. There is no doubt today's attack on both Israel and Jordan was the work of extremists, who not only wanted to kill innocent people but they wanted to destroy the chance of moving forward together in peace."
