Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely reportedly engaged in a nasty spat with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh at United Nations headquarters in New York on Thursday.
According to Israel Radio, the incident was triggered when Judeh took to the podium to speak at a donors conference hosted by the UN.
During his remarks, Judeh accused Israeli security forces of "defiling al-Aksa mosque with their feet."
This prompted Hotovely to angrily confront the Jordanian diplomat, accusing him of "distorting history."
