The Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriate summoned the Israeli ambassador to Amman to convey a strongly worded message of protest regarding the detention of two Jordanian citizens in Israel and the manner in which the Israeli authorities treated them.
On May 16, Israel announced the arrest of two Jordanians for allegedly crossing the border on their way to Jerusalem, carrying knives.
The ministry stressed the need to allow staff of the Jordanian embassy in Tel Aviv to visit them as soon as possible, in order to assess their situation and provide them with the necessary support in accordance with the relevant international laws.
The ministry held the Israeli authorities fully responsible for their safety, demanding the Israeli ambassador to convey an urgent message to the Israeli authorities to release them.
