Jordan's new ambassador arrives in Israel

Jordan’s new Ambassador to Israel, Ghassan Majali, arrived in Tel Aviv yesterday to officially present his credentials at the Foreign Ministry.

According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Majali arrived at the Israeli Foreign Ministry and met senior officials.

Majali delivered his documents to Meron Reuben, the Foreign Ministry’s Chief of State Protocol of the State of Israel, at the ministry in Jerusalem.

“A very warm welcome to the new Jordanian ambassador to Israel Mr. Ghassan Abdel Rahim Odeh Majali who presented copies of credentials this morning in Jerusalem,” Reuben tweeted about the event.

Israel’s new Ambassador to Jordan, Amir Weissbrod, took office in late March seven months after the previous official, Einat Schlein, was expelled.

Relations broke down last summer when an Israeli embassy guard shot two Jordanian citizens, teenager Mohamed Al-Jawawdeh and Bashar Hamarneh, claiming that it was in self-defence as one of them attacked him with a screwdriver. The Israeli was wounded and the two Jordanians were killed, as a result the Jordanian government demanded Schlein leave the country.
