The kid is 16-year-old. and he wasn't carrying any weapon, so he didn't have any intent.

The Israeli statement said that according to global conventions, the guard has legal immunity.

Deadly clashes have rocked Jerusalem since Israeli authorities installed metal detectors at entrances to the Haram al-Sharif compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, following an attack on July 14 that killed two policemen.

In a statement posted on Facebook prior to the attack, the assailant said he was motivated by the Israeli government's recent restrictions on al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, according to an Israeli military spokesman.

Local police said that the two killed Jordanians were working for a furniture firm and had entered the complex before the shooting began, and that an investigation has been launched into the incident. A second Jordanian, the owner of the building, was hit by gunfire and later died of his injuries. "I want to know how the investigation is going and know what happened and what led to the killing of my son".

An Israeli government official said talks were underway whether to evacuate the embassy staff, given the tensions in Jordan.

A source said that one of the two Jordanians stabbed the assistant of the Israeli embassy's security manager after a quarrel between them.

Israeli Major General Yoav Mordechai - head of COGAT, the defence ministry agency responsible for civilian affairs in the Palestinian territories - signalled that changes to the policy were possible. Muslims across the world have demanded that the devices be removed, and the Palestinian Authority said it was cutting off all contacts with Israel because of the new measures.

Violence against Israelis is rare in Jordan, a tightly policed country that is also a staunch regional ally of the United States. A deadly shooting near Israel's Embassy in Jordan has exacerbated tensions. Ties recovered after Israel delivered the antidote for the poison with which Meshaal had been injected and liberated the then imprisoned leader of Hamas, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. Israel's move triggered Muslim protests and claims that it's trying to expand its role at the site, which is also holy to Jews.
