Israel’s Foreign Ministry said Monday its new ambassador to Jordan is taking up his posting, ending a months-long spat between the two countries over a deadly embassy shooting.

The return of an Israeli envoy to Amman comes after the two countries agreed to end a diplomatic standoff following the shooting deaths of two Jordanians by an Israeli security guard who Israel said opened fire in self-defense after one of the men stabbed him.
