Two Jordanians dead and an 1 armed Israeli guard was injured after an incident at the Israeli embassy complex in Jordan

Two Jordanians were killed and an armed Israeli guard was injured after an incident at the Israeli embassy complex in Jordan. A Jordanian attacked the guard with a screwdriver right next to the Israeli embassy and was soon shot to death. 

A second Jordanian was also inadvertently killed in the gunfire, Israeli officials said. The guard sustained minor wounds. 

The attacker was a carpenter purportedly working in a residential building used by the embassy. This is one of the most serious incidents between the two countries since they signed a peace treaty in 1994. 

The second Jordanian, who died from his wounds in a hospital, was identified as the building’s landlord. According to the Vienna Convention of 1961, the Israeli guard has immunity from investigation and arrest.
