>> A Jordanian man shot dead at Israel's heavily guarded embassy in Amman on Sunday, after attacking an Israeli security guard with a screwdriver. That's according to the Israeli foreign ministry who on Monday confirmed the death of the alleged attacker and another Jordanian man. It's an incident that has the potential to cause a rift in already tense relations between Israel and Jordan.
Because Jordan wants to question the guards and Israel says he has diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention. The incident happened as furniture was being replaced of a staff residence at the embassy, the second Jordanian who died was the property's owner, the Foreign Ministry said.
]Israel's fortress like embassy has long been a flashpoint of anti-Israeli protest during times of turmoil in the Palestinian territories.
But violence against Israelis in Jordan is rare.
nsions have increased between Israel and Jordan however since the installation of metal detectors at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. That decision has triggered violent clashes between Muslim protestors and Israeli security forces at the site which is sacred to both Jews and Muslims.
Jordan has called for the removal of the metal detectors, and thousands of Jordanians have protested the move.
