Jordan said to delay envoy return due to attack

Jordan was set to send its envoy back to Tel Aviv before the end of the month, but pushed it off after Tuesday’s attack, a Jordanian paper reports, according to Israel Radio.

The report cites Jordanian diplomatic sources who maintain that Amman feels the attack will likely increase tensions in the capital, making the envoy’s return “inappropriate” at this time.

Jordan recalled its envoy from Tel Aviv on November 5 in protest at “Israel’s escalation on the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.”
