Amid crisis with Jordan, Netanyahu vows to bring embassy guard home

Security forces stand guard outside the Israeli embassy in the residential Rabiyeh neighbourhood of Amman after an incident

Israel and Jordan signed a peace deal in 1994, but the agreement remains deeply unpopular in the kingdom where many residents are of Palestinian origin.

Israel's foreign ministry failed to refer to such demands in its statement, but said the guard has diplomatic immunity, according to global conventions.

Israeli media on Tuesday showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu giving a hero's welcome to the unidentified embassy staffer who killed a 16-year-old boy and a surgeon.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu discussed the situation with Jordan's King Abdullah II by phone on Monday evening, while he met with security and defense officials on both crises. Israeli authorities are working with their Jordanian counterparts, the Israeli foreign ministry said.

Following the attack, the Israeli deputy ambassador remained in Cairo; 85 staff members and their families returned to Israel. Two Jordanians worked for a furniture company and entered the embassy compound to carry out repairs.

Earlier in 1997, a Jordanian soldier opened fire at a group of Israeli schoolgirls on a field trip to a joint Israeli-Jordanian tourist resort along the border. "The second, Bashar Hamarneh, a doctor who was in the residential quarter of the embassy at the time of the incident, died of his injuries after midnight in hospital", the security source said.

Police deployed to the scene and surrounded the area, the statement said, adding that the two Jordanians had gone into the building to carry out "carpentry work". This included a security guard who shot dead two Jordanians after he was attacked by one of them.

Initial reports in Jordan described the incident as a domestic dispute, but Israeli media suspected the attack was nationalistically motivated, amid the tensions between Israel and Muslim countries in the region over recently installed security measures on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Israel implemented the Temple Mount security measures following a terror attack 11 days ago, in which three Israeli Arabs attacked and killed two border policemen with weapons that had been hidden on the Temple Mount. The tensions have led to mass prayer protests and Israeli-Palestinian violence.
