Two Katyusha rockets were fired into Israel from Jordan in the early hours of Thursday morning without causing casualties or damage. The last such incident occurred a year ago and Israeli sources believe both attacks were by terrorists who infiltrated Jordan from Syria although the Jordanian army has taken great pains to prevent such infiltration. Residents of Kibbutz Neve Eitan, east of Bet Shean, reported hearing two explosions and seeing two flashes at about 3 a.m. local time. Israel army units found the impact crater and fragments of one of the rockets and were searching Thursday for the point of impact of the other.
