Cairo: Egypt said on Wednesday that "Palestinian factions" were behind this week's rocket attacks on Israel and Jordan, the MENA news agency reported, apparently implying the rockets were fired from the Sinai peninsula.

"An official Egyptian source said Palestinian factions from the Gaza Strip were behind the launch of five rockets on Aqaba and Eilat on Monday," MENA reported.

"Egypt will never, under any circumstances, tolerate the use of its lands by any party to harm the country's interests," the agency quoted the source as saying.
