The PSD added in a statement that preliminary investigations indicate that the two Jordanians had entered the embassy's compound to do carpentry work, Jordanian news agency Petra said.

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

Tensions have soared since Israel installed metal detectors outside the entrance to one of Jerusalem's holiest sites, known as the Temple Mount to Jews and the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims.

Several thousand Jordanians demonstrated on Friday against Israel in protests in Amman and in cities and refugee camps across the kingdom.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, who has announced he was freezing contacts with Israel over the dispute, said Sunday this included the security coordination that has been credited with preventing wider unrest in recent years.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke last night with Israeli ambassador to Jordan Einat Schlein and with the security guard.

It reopened it on July 16, but with the metal detectors in place, stoking Palestinian anger. Israel also released Hamas's founder and spiritual leader, Ahmed Yassin, from jail as part of the swap.

"I met with him two months ago and already then he said he was concerned over the Temple Mount crisis", she said.
