NEW AM­BAS­SADOR FOR JOR­DAN AS­SUMES POST, SAYS OF­FI­CIAL

Sun.Star Cebu - - WORLD -

Is­rael’s For­eign Min­istry says its new am­bas­sador to Jor­dan is start­ing his post­ing, end­ing a month­s­long spat be­tween the two coun­tries over a deadly em­bassy shoot­ing. Amir Weiss­brod’s post­ing ends one of the tens­est pe­ri­ods be­tween Is­rael and Jor­dan since the two signed a peace treaty in 1994. Min­istry spokesman Em­manuel Nahshon says Weiss­brod ar­rived in the cap­i­tal, Am­man, on Mon­day. The dis­pute be­gan last sum­mer when a se­cu­rity guard at the Is­raeli em­bassy in Jor­dan shot and killed two Jor­da­ni­ans, al­leg­ing one at­tacked him with a screw driver. The Is­raeli guard and Is­rael’s then-am­bas­sador were given a hero’s wel­come by Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu, in­fu­ri­at­ing Jor­dan. /
