That "Jordanian luxury hotel" is the one Ellery and I stayed in at this time 2 years ago.


Rocket kills 1, injures 5 near Jordanian luxury hotel

Reporting from Cairo —

A rocket apparently aimed at an Israeli resort on the Red Sea landed Monday near a luxury hotel in neighboring Jordan, killing one person and wounding five others in an attack probably launched by Islamic militants in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
Jordanian officials said a rocket struck in front of the InterContinental Hotel in Aqaba about 7:45 a.m. The attack was part of salvo of as many as five rockets fired toward the Israeli town of Eilat, which sits along the coast a few miles from Aqaba.

"The rocket was launched from outside the country," said Ali Al Ayed, the Jordanian minister for media affairs and communication.
