Israel worked throught the day on various different channels to ensure that the stabbing attack of the Israeli security guard would not spiral out of control and poison relations.
            The Israeli guard stabbed in an attack at the embassy in Jordan on Sunday returned to Israel some 30 hours later with the rest of embassy staff after a ense day of negotiations between jerusalem and Amman aimed at defusing a diplomatic crisis.

            The Prime Minister's Office released a statement late Monday night saying that the embassy staffers crossed over to Israel via the allenby Bridge, and their return was made possible due to the close cooperation between Israel and Jordan.  

             Israel workd throught the day on various different channels to ensure that the stabbing attack of the Israeli security guard at the embassy in Amman that left him lightly wounded and the asswilant and another man dead would not spiral out of control and poison relations.
            The security cabinet met Monday evening to discuss the crisis on the Temple Mount over the installation of metal detectors, amid speculations that the Jordanians would allow the guard to return to Israel as part of wider deal that would have the metal detectors remove, and less visible-buthighly sophisticated cameras placed in their stead that could determine if someone was carryi8ng weapons or explosives.
