Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was expected to speak by phone with Jordan's King Abdullah on Monday in an attempt to ease tense relations between their two countries after an attack at the Israeli embassy in Amman, Channel 2 reported.

According to the report, several diplomatic officials have been in constant contact with their Jordanian counterparts as part of efforts to defuse the crisis that came amid increased tensions surrounding the Temple Mount.  Netanyahu spoke by phone on Sunday night with Israel's Ambassador in Jordan, Einat Schlein, along with the security officer regarding the matter.

Late on Sunday night, an Israeli security officer at the Israeli mission in Jordan was stabbed in the stomach by an assailant with a screwdriver. According to the Foreign Minister, the Israeli guard responded to the attack by shooting the attacker, killing him and another Jordanian in the vicinity.
