Two Israeli police officers apologized to Jordan's charge d'affaires in Israel after allegedly assaulting two Jordanian embassy employees, the Jordan Times reported on Friday.

Micky Rosenfeld, the Israeli police spokesperson, said the police officers visited the Jordanian embassy and "expressed their deepest regrets regarding the assault”, the Jordan Times reported citing the Jordan News Agency in Petra.

On Tuesday, AFP quoted Rosenfeld as saying, "“They [the diplomats] were questioned for a short period of time in the area where police were on patrol.”

“Their IDs and passports didn’t exactly match. They were released after a short time when things were cleared up.”
