«Israeli» Embassy in Jordan to Reopen
The "Israeli" entity's embassy in Jordan's capital Amman will be reopened after six months of closure, so-called "Israeli" foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said on Tuesday.
He stressed that the reopening would be "gradual," however no further details were made public.
The "Israeli" entity decision comes amid an intensification of efforts to restore bilateral relations with Jordan, which were damaged as a result of the diplomatic scandal between the two countries.
The "Israeli" embassy staff was expelled from Amman after the entity didn't offer an apology for the incident when two Jordanians were killed by a security guard for the "Israeli" embassy, which provoked resentment in Jordan.
A Jordanian worker stabbed the "Israeli" embassy's security guard in the back after which the guard shot him dead. A second Jordanian, the landlord of the apartment where the violent incident took place, was also killed by accident.
In August, amid pressure from the Jordanian side, the "Israeli" entity launched a probe into the attack near the "Israeli" Embassy in Amman, whereas the apologies from Tel Aviv came later in January.
The entity also apologized for the killing of a Jordanian judge by an "Israeli" serviceman at the countries' border in 2014 and agreed to pay a compensation to the families of those killed.
