Israel, Jordan deal with diplomatic crisis after embassy attack

While the king's statement did not refer to specific diplomatic measures, Abdullah said that Israeli's response would have consequences.

The detectors were installed after two Israeli policemen were shot dead by three Arab-Israeli gunmen on July 14. Even the smallest perceived change to delicate arrangements pertaining to the site sparks tensions.

An Israeli security official who was attacked Sunday night at the Israeli embassy compound in Amman shot and killed the Jordanian man who attacked him, according to statements from Jordanian and Israeli officials.

A DARWEN councillor born in Jordan has spoken of the distress and anger at discovering her relative has been killed outside the Israeli Embassy in its capital Amman.

It is believed that the Jordanian government is asking to conduct an independent investigation into the incident and has prevented Israeli embassy staff from leaving the premises.

The compound is considered the third holiest site in Islam, and the most sacred for the Jewish.

Thousands of Jordanians demonstrated against Israel in Amman on Friday over the installation of metal detectors at the Temple Mount. "We will dedicate all the efforts and resources to ensure that justice takes its course", the king said. Besides the security guard, the landowner of the building and the two delivery workers were present.

On the government level, Israel and Jordan cooperate closely, if discreetly, on security.

A heavy Jordanian police presence had sealed off the area around the embassy so the protesters gathered nearby. It was a high-level, on-the-ground attempt by the Trump administration to end the standoff between Israel and the Muslim world. "We had an obligation to bring you home, and we did". "It was only a question of time and I am happy that it was a short ordeal" said Netanyahu to Ziv the embassy guard. The tensions have led to mass prayer protests and Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Israeli media reported that high resolution cameras capable of detecting hidden objects would be deployed.

A video posted by the Israeli foreign minister showed the Israeli Prime Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu congratulating the agent and the ambassador for returning safely.

Israel captured the shrine, along with east Jerusalem and other territories, in the 1967 war.
