Minister says rocket hitting Jordan warhouse fired from outside

Jordan said on Thursday a rocket that hit a warehouse in Jordan was fired from outside the country targeting the kingdom and said no rockets had been launched from its territory.

"After an investigation, the cause of the explosion was the fall of a (Soviet) Grad rocket from outside Jordanian territory, the rocket was not launched from Jordanian territory," Nabil Sharif, minister for state for information, told Reuters, without giving further details.

Witnesses and a Jordanian security source earlier said two rockets were fired from the Jordanian port of Aqaba towards Israel, but landed on the empty warehouse. The minister did not mention a second rocket.
