The Amman Shooting Incident at the Israeli Embassy

Jordanian street voices anger over Al Aqsa restrictions

Now, relations between the neighboring countries appear to be on the brink of collapse after Jordanian terrorist attacked an Israeli embassy security guard in Amman.

Sunday's attack comes after two Israeli officers were killed by by three Israeli Arabs on July 14 at the Lion's Gate entrance to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

An Israeli embassy security guard shot dead a Jordanian who stabbed him with a screwdriver in the Amman mission compound in an incident in which a Jordanian bystander was also killed, Israel said on Monday.

The Jordanian Public Security Directorate confirmed on Monday in a statement that the second Jordanian man died.

"I told both of them (the guard and Israel's ambassador to Jordan, Einat Shalin) that we are holding ongoing contacts with security and government officials in Amman, on all levels, in order to bring the incident to a close as quickly as possible".

However the MFA says that as a diplomat, the official is immune from "investigation or imprisonment" under global law.

Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians over the site have surged in recent days in response to the metal detectors, which were put in place following the killing nearby of two Israeli policemen. Israel also released Hamas's founder and spiritual leader, Ahmed Yassin, from jail as part of the swap.

Since then, daily clashes erupted between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters at the site's gates. In protest, thousands of worshipers gathered for Friday prayers at various entrances to the sacred compound.

It has always been a flashpoint of anti-Israeli protests at times of turmoil in the Palestinian territories. Jordanian government officials were not immediately available for comment.

The following year clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces around the site quickly led to unrest elsewhere in Jerusalem, across Israel and in the West Bank that have continued intermittently till now.

The two wounded people were taken to hospital, it said.

The father of the teen assailant reportedly told a Jordanian television station that he does not believe his son meant to attack an Israeli.

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".

Israel has said the metal detectors were a needed security measure to prevent future attacks.

A significant percentage of Jordan's population is of Palestinian origin and a Jordanian religious authority, the Waqf, administers the Temple Mount/Noble Sanctuary.
