Russian-designed Grad Rocket Hits Red Sea Port of Aqaba, Jordan

A Russian-designed Grad that was fired from beyond Jordan’s borders damaged a refrigerated warehouse a northern outskirt region of Aqaba, Jordan. Israeli news media reported that two rockets hit Aqaba and Israel’s nearby port of Eilat. No deaths or injuries were reported.

The incident occurred after Israel issued an “urgent” warning for its citizens to leave Egypt’s nearby Sinai Peninsula immediately, citing “concrete evidence of an expected terrorist attempt to kidnap Israelis in Sinai.”
