RAMALLAH, July 7 (JMCC) - Hamas has suggested that Israel fired the rockets that hit the Red Sea port resorts of Israel and Jordan. The Palestinian group that controls the Gaza Strip said that Israel might use the killing of one Jordanian civilian to justify another assault on Gaza.
The Soviet-style Grad rockets crashed into the sea near Eilat and killed a taxi driver in Aqaba on Monday, in the second such attack this year. Hamas has denied having firing the projectiles.Read
Sami Khater from Hamas' Damascus-based political bureau said on Saturday the group had no interest in firing the rockets and even ruled out that they had come from Egyptian territory.
Khater explained that Israel may have fired the rockets in order to blame Hamas and consequently gain a pretext to launch fresh attacks on Palestinians.
