Israel’s ambassador to Jordan returned to Amman after being withdrawn in advance of an anti-Israel protest.
The ambassador returned Friday, two days after Israel withdrew its embassy staff from the Jordanian capital as a safety precaution.
According to reports, only about 200 protesters turned out on Thursday in Amman for what had been billed as a “million man-march” against Jordan’s peace treaty with Israel. Jordanian police prevented the protesters from marching on the embassy.
The decision to remove the staff in Amman came several days after Egyptian demonstrators stormed Israel’s embassy in Cairo, necessitating the emergency rescue of its staff by Egyptian commandos.
