Al-Qaida linked group in Iraq on Tuesday claimed responsibility for a rockets attack in the Jordanian port of Aqaba on Friday, the group said in an Internet statement.
The group headed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi most wanted in Iraq, said in the Internet statement that it was behind the Aqaba strike, which killed a Jordanian soldier.
However, the Internet statement could not be verified.
Earlier, another al-Qaida Organization in the Levant and Egypt also claimed the responsibility about the Aqaba strike as well as deadly bombings on Egyptian resorts in recent period, saying that its "mujahedeen" had returned "safely to base" after the Aqaba attack.
Rocket blasts hit Jordan's Aqaba port and Israeli city Eilat on Friday morning, the al-Jazeera TV channel reported.
A Jordanian official statement confirmed later that three Katyushas were fired from the roof of a warehouse in Aqaba port, killing one Jordanian soldier and wounding another.
One rocket hit a Jordanian armed forces depot, the second landed near a military hospital, while the third fell on the Israeli port city of Eilat, the statement added.
