The shooting took place on Sunday evening in a residential building used by embassy staff.

On Monday, Israel’s Foreign Ministry said a security guard shot and killed the Jordanians in a confrontation.

Police said that the two Jordanians worked for a furniture company and entered the embassy compound to carry out repairs.

Israeli media say the guard opened fire, killing the 17-year-old Jordanian. The reports say the Jordanian owner of the apartment was hit by gunfire inadvertently and later died.

The Israeli was in “unstable” condition, reported news site Hala Akhbar, linked to the Jordanian military.

“We have started a large-scale investigation into the incident and ordered the prosecutor general to look at all the details,” the police said in a statement.

Jordanian security forces were deployed in the streets around the embassy, police said.

Mounting tensions

The incident comes at a time of mounting tensions between Israel and the Muslim world over metal detectors Israel installed around the al-Aqsa Mosque.

Earlier on Sunday, Jordan requested an urgent meeting for Arab foreign ministers to discuss the situation.
