israeli embassy in Jordan
Following an incident in July, the embassy’s entire staff – including the guard and ambassador Einat Schlein – were returned to Israel
Israeli sources said on Wednesday they were planning to replace Ambassador Einat Schlein at the Amman embassy in an effort to improve ties.
Jordan demands that Israel launch criminal proceedings against security guard at the embassy who killed two Jordanians in what he called self-defense.
It is in the vital interests of both countries that Israeli-Jordanian relations be put back on track.

The Jordanian paper noted that, according to documents obtained, the guard carried a diplomatic identity card.
The staff of Israel's embassy in Jordan, including the security guard involved in the shooting incident, returned to Israel from Amman on Monday.
Israel views its relationship with Jordan as strategic and sees its presence in the country as both symbolically and tactically important.
The return of the embassy personnel was made possible due to the close cooperation that took place during a 24-hour period between Israel and Jordan.
Israel said the security officer had acted in self-defense when he shot his attacker while his father said the young teenager had no militant links.
