JERUSALEM: A deadly shooting at Israel’s Embassy in Jordan has further complicated Israeli government efforts to find a way out of an escalating crisis over Al-Aqsa Mosque, including mass Muslim prayer protests and Israeli-Palestinian violence.
The shooting, in which an Israeli security guard killed two Jordanians after being attacked by one of them with a screwdriver, led to a diplomatic standoff between the two countries at a time when Jordan is heavily involved in efforts to defuse the crisis over the holy site in occupied Jerusalem.
