As Temple Mount Unrest Grows, Israel-Jordan on Verge of Diplomatic Crisis

US Ambassador to Israel condemns Halamish attack

The official Jordanian government version of events is similar: It says Jawawdeh attacked the Israeli guard, who shot and killed him and the landlord of the residence, Bashar Hamarneh. Besides the security guard, the landowner of the building and the two delivery workers were present. "He later died of his wounds", the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

After the metal detectors were installed, rather than publicly rage against the Israeli government, the king and the Jordanian government by all accounts worked to try and come up with a compromise that would eliminate the metal detectors while still addressing Israel's security concerns. Israel said the security official was slightly wounded but defended himself.

Hala Akhbar, a news site linked to the country military, quoted Ayman Safadi Tuesday saying Jordan's King Abdullah II had "lead the crisis in a way to preserve the status quo, and revoking all the new measures on the ground".

Eran said Israeli-Jordanian relations behind the scenes reveal good cooperation, particularly in the areas of security and water.

Israel's foreign ministry has not responded to the demand to prosecute Ziv or to reports that Amman could pursue the case in an worldwide forum.

Israel and Jordan are bound by a 1994 peace treaty, but tensions have been high in recent days after Israel's security measures at the Al Aqsa mosque site in annexed east Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Jordan's Public Security Directorate said it had concluded an investigation of the Israeli Embassy shooting which took place Sunday evening in a residential building used by embassy staff. The crisis that had begun because of the security measures was considered by some to be the bloodiest in the city in years.

Thousands of Jordanians attended the funeral for Mohammad Jawawdah, 17, who was killed Sunday by the guard after stabbing him with a screwdriver.

Even as Washington attempts to thread the needle on North Korean sanctions, some analysts argue they won't have much effect. The service may break even in a few months and will continue even amid the USA demands for isolating North Korea , he said.

Muslim leaders claimed Israel was trying to expand its control at the site under the guise of security, a claim Israel emphaticlly denied.

Jordan said initially that the guard could leave only after an investigation, while Israel said he enjoyed diplomatic immunity.

People attend the funeral of Mohammad Jawawdah, killed by an Israeli embassy Guard in Amman, on July 25, 2017, Jordan.

The Israeli government has refused to allow the guard to be questioned by police.
