Ziv Moyal, the Israeli Embassy Guard who killed the Jordanian terrorist inside the Israeli embassy’s residence in Jordan, won’t be brought to trial, according to Israeli sources who spoke with Reuters. The Jordanian landlord was also killed in the crossfire as he was trying to pull the terrorist off Moyal.

Among Jordan’s original demands from Israel in order for the Israeli embassy in Amman to be reopened is that the guard would stand trial. The other demands include compensation to the families, an apology, and replacing the Israeli ambassador, all of which Israel agreed to fulfill.


Instead of a trial, Moyal will be questioned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Shabak, and will share the results of their investigation with the Jordanians.

Over the past few years, a number of Jordanian citizens have committed terror attacks against Israelis, Jordan has yet to apologize for a single attack.
