Two Jordanians killed in shooting at Israeli embassy in Amman

Tensions between Israel and Jordan have risen after an Israeli embassy security guard shot and killed two Jordanians. A second Jordanian, the owner of the building who was also a physician, was hit by gunfire and later died of his wounds.

The carpenter, who was in the embassy compound for routine furniture replacement, attacked the security official from behind by stabbing him with a screwdriver, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Monday.

Just a few hours earlier, Israel and Jordan resolved a diplomatic stand-off late after a day of top-level negotiations that ended with the evacuation of Israeli embassy staff from their base in Jordan.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Eynat Schlein, Israel's ambassador to Jordan, and with the security official over the incident.

Israel began removing metal detectors from a contested Jerusalem shrine in a bid to quell violent Palestinian opposition, in a deal that also helped to end a diplomatic standoff with Jordan.

It said the measure would "ensure the security of visitors and worshippers" at the holy site and in Jerusalem's Old City and the police presence would increase in the area until the new security measures were in place. The site is sacred to both Muslims and Jews.

Jordanians are set to hold another protest on Friday to repeat their demand for closure of the Israeli Embassy and tearing up the unpopular peace treaty.

The Israeli security guard was also injured in the attack.

But in a statement from the royal court, King Abdullah said Mr Netanyahu's behaviour towards the security guard had been "provocative on all fronts and enrages us, destabilises security and fuels extremism".

The father of the slain teen on Monday called for an investigation and said he would not bury his son until he was shown security camera footage of the incident.

Jordan is the Muslim custodian of the site.

The kingdom, a strong ally of Washington, is one of only two Arab countries to have diplomatic ties with Israel, with which it shares the longest borders.

On Monday Israel thanked Jordan for its "close co-operation". The ministers were reportedly reviewing the initial decision on installing the metal detectors and weighing possible alternatives.

It came as Israeli media reported that U.S. President Donald Trump's Mideast envoy was on his way to the region to try to defuse the growing Temple Mount crisis.
