Israeli embassy staff in Jordan returned to IsraelBy Ori Lewis and Suleiman Al-Khalidi JERUSALEM/AMMAN (Reuters) – The staff of Israel’s embassy in Jordan, including a security guard involved in a shooting incident in which two Jordanians were killed, returned to Israel from Amman on Monday, an official from the Israeli prime minister’s office said. Sunday’s fatal shooting incident tested already tense relations between Israel and Jordan, one of two Arab states with which it has peace treaties. Jordan had wanted to question the guard, who was slightly hurt, but Israel said he had diplomatic immunity and should be repatriated.
