Here's a look at the Israeli-Jordanian relationship.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan's King Abdullah spoke that afternoon by telephone. At the time, agents of Israel's Mossad spy agency tried to assassinate then-Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal in Amman. The Jordanian owner of the apartment was hit by gunfire inadvertently and later died. "So Jordan did what it had to do under worldwide law and now it is incumbent upon Israel to also do what it has to do under the law, which is to allow for the criminal justice to take its course and also to act morally and allow for justice to happen".

The Prime Minister's Office released a statement saying that the guard and other embassy staffers crossed over to Israel via the Allenby Bridge, bringing a happy ending to their 28-hour ordeal during which all were locked down in the embassy compound. He stabbed and killed three of the family members while they were celebrating the beginning of Shabbat.

A major holy site in Jerusalem, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount, has been a frequent source of friction. Jews revere the esplanade as the site of their destroyed biblical Temples, and the holiest site in their religion.

Jordanian security officials said they interviewed two witnesses, a second worker and the doorman of the building. The tensions have led to mass prayer protests and Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Israel's Reshet Bet radio on Monday morning reported that a senior Israeli official is on his way to Amman to resolve the crisis.

Speaking at a press-conference, as reported by The Times , Mourinho said on De Gea: "I can guarantee he's not going this season". To be fair to the slick-haired goalkeeper, he never openly stated his desire to leave the club as many footballers do.

Muslim religious leaders have said that Israel is trying to expand its control at the site under the guise of security, a claim Israel denies.

Two Jordanians were killed and an israeli wounded in an incident at the Israel embassy compound in Amman on Sunday night, according to media reports.

Argaman reportedly reconstructed the attack with the Jordanians and produced evidence that the attacker - Mohammed Zakaria al-Jawawdeh, 17 - had a record of violent behavior, which cleared away any remaining doubts that the guard's account was true.

A senior aide to Duda, Krzysztof Szczerski, said Tusk should instead focus on explaining Poland's stance in Brussels. European Union leaders have criticized the bill for impairing judicial independence and threatening the rule of law.

The shooting at Israel's embassy in the Jordanian capital of Amman is bound to raise friction between the two countries and further inflame Jordanian public opinion against Israel.
