The country has demanded an investigation of events and strongly protested what it called "an aggression" by Israeli policemen.
The report suggested that Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh summoned the Israeli ambassador in Amman and expressed his concerns over the event.
Judeh told the Israeli representative that the Jordanian government

On Tuesday, two employees of the Jordanian Embassy were briefly detained
in Givataim after arousing the suspicions of detectives.
