Jordanians killed, 1 Israeli wounded at Israeli embassy

Posted July 29, 2017

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday, Rosh Chodesh Av, explained "I spoke twice overnight with Israeli Ambassador to Jordan Einat Schlein and with the security guard". Besides the security guard, the landowner of the building and the two delivery workers were present.

Protesters urged King Abdullah II of Jordan to close the Israeli embassy, following Israel's decision on Tuesday to shutter its embassy in Turkey.

Two Jordanians later died, according to the agency and the news site Hala Akhbar, linked to the Jordanian military.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel would look to destroy the home of the attacker as soon as possible, a routine measure intended as a deterrent against future attacks.

Israel's security Cabinet was meeting from late Sunday until the early hours of Monday to discuss the crisis at the shrine, and was briefed during the meeting about the incidents at the embassy, the Foreign Ministry said.

On Friday, thousands of people took to the streets in Amman to protest against Israel's installation of metal detectors at a site sacred which is also holy to Jews.

We all had a good game overall and a lot of players played well. "He always represented FC Bayern's never-say-die mentality".

"Jordan took testimony of the Israeli diplomat with the consent of his country before he left for Israel", Ayman Safadi told a news conference held in the Jordanian capital. "Israel is expected to pay reparations to the family of the owner of the apartment who was killed in this incident".

Israeli police installed metal detectors at the site and placed a temporary ban on Muslim men under the age of 50 from entering the area, following the death of two Israeli police officers.

Muslim leaders claimed Israel was trying to expand its control at the site under the guise of security, a claim Israel emphaticlly denied. He says "a weight has been lifted from my heart" and thanked the Israeli government for bringing him home.

The restrictions triggered protests from Palestinians, who see the move as a punitive measure, and sparked violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces. Israeli staff were allowed to evacuate from the country, over local objections, but Jordanian media reported on Thursday that they would only be allowed to return if Ziv, who was under diplomatic protection, faces criminal charges.

Jordanian officials are demanding that Israel "ensure that justice is served" by prosecuting a security guard who killed two Jordanians during a stabbing attack at the Israeli embassy in Amman on July 24.
