Israel embassy in Jordan to reopen to the public in coming days
The Israeli Embassy in Amman, Jordan, will be reopened to the public in the coming days and some embassy staff have already returned to their positions, The Jerusalem Post with reference to the Israel Public Radio reported on Tuesday.
Israel Public Radio diplomatic correspondent Gili Cohen reported on Twitter that Israel is currently still looking for an ambassador to replace former ambassador Einat Schlein.
The embassy had been closed since July, when an Israeli guard, Ziv Moyal, shot dead two Jordanians, Mohammed Jawawdeh and Bashar Hamarneh.
Israel has “strongly apologized” for the July incident and promised to compensate the victims’ families, a Jordanian government spokesman said on January 18.
