JORDAN: Israeli Embassy Begins Gradual Reopening

On 30 January, Israel National News reported Israel’s Foreign Ministry had announced the reopening of the Israeli Embassy in Amman. The embassy has been closed for six months after an Israeli embassy guard shot and killed two Jordanian citizens. Israel has offered to replace Einat Schlein, previous Israeli Ambassador to Jordan, but has not announced Schlein’s replacement.
