A Jordanian court ordered the Israeli embassy in Amman to pay $500,000 in damages to a Jordanian national hurt on July 23, 2017, by an embassy security guard.

According to Jordanian media, the court agreed with the plaintiff, Maher Fares Ibrahim, who claimed he was 80% disabled and unable to support himself.

Ziv Moyal, an Israeli security guard, unintentionally hurt Ibrahim, a furniture mover.

Moyal was defending himself against a 17-year-old assaulter named Mohammad Jawawdeh.

Moyal was attacked with a screwdriver by Jawawdeh, who had arrived to install the furniture.

Moyal suffered three stab wounds—two to the back and one to the chest.

Additionally, Bashar al-Hamarna, the owner of the flat where the attack occurred, was fatally shot by Moyal by accident.

The incident heightened tensions between the nations. Jordan first insisted on questioning the guard.

In its denial, Israel cited Moyal’s diplomatic immunity.

A day after the event, Jordan permitted the guard, the Israeli ambassador, and diplomatic personnel to return to Israel.

For the families of the two people who were shot dead, as well as a Jordanian judge slain in a separate incident in 2014,

Israel agreed to pay the Jordanian government $5 million in compensation in 2018.
