Jordanian killed and Israeli injured inside the Israeli embassy in Amman (update)

US Ambassador to Israel condemns Halamish attack

The dead Jordanian was killed by a gunshot, while the two wounded people including an Israeli were taken to hospital.

On Friday, thousands of Jordanians protested in Amman against Israel over the installation of metal detectors outside a site sacred to both Muslims and Jews in East Jerusalem.

Israel's foreign ministry has not responded to the demand to prosecute Ziv or to reports that Amman could pursue the case in an global forum. Safadi called Israel's handling of the guard's return a "disgrace", commenting, "It would be appropriate if Israel acted diplomatically".

On Sunday, an Israeli embassy staffer killed a Jordanian and injured another Jordanian doctor who later died from wounds.

Jordan's King Abdullah II lashed out at Israel's prime minister on Thursday, saying everyone in the kingdom was "infuriated" by what he called "unacceptable and provocative behavior" in connection with a deadly shooting at Israel's Embassy in Amman earlier this week.

An Israeli judicial source who declined to be named said state prosecutors were giving "preliminary consideration" to an investigation. The second Jordanian to be killed was the building's landlord.

King Abdullah on Thursday also paid tribute to the families of the two Jordanians and stressed on Jordan's respect of global laws.

According to reports on Israel's Channel Ten and Ynet, the guard, known only as Ziv, told police on Thursday night that the teen questioned him about his nationality and upon discovering he is Israeli, drew a screwdriver and began trying to stab him in the neck.

The incident took place at a privately-owned building rented by the Israeli government as a residence for some of its consular employees.

The guard shot dead Jordanian teenager Mohammad Jawawdah at Israel's embassy in Amman on Sunday as well as the landlord of the house in the compound where the guard lived.

Israel and Jordan signed a peace treaty in 1994.

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

Jordan has been the scene of severe public outrage against Israel since July 14 when the Tel Aviv regime bolstered security measures at al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas deserves an entire column of his own detailing his irresponsibility in almost every aspect of this drama, including his continuing dissembling over alleged threats to the Temple Mount status quo and his shockingly irresponsible and unsafe invitation to the Tanzim militia to lead mass protests this Friday.
