Israel working to bring home embassy guard from Jordan

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.

A report in Jordanian news outlet Saraya quoted government sources as saying that Interior Minister Ghaleb Al-Zubi forbade the Israeli official, who was lightly wounded in the incident, from leaving the country until investigations into the incident are complete.

The Jordanian government has issued a court order forbidding the departure from the country of an Israeli embassy official after he had killed in self-defense one Jordanian carpenter and injured another on Sunday in his apartment in the embassy compound.

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.

The UN Security Council will hold closed-door talks today about the spiralling violence after Egypt, France and Sweden sought a meeting to "urgently discuss how calls for de-escalation in Jerusalem can be supported". During those riots, three Palestinians were killed, and dozens injured.
