This morning (Monday), the name of the Israeli embassy security guard involved in the shooting of two Jordanian citizens, Ziv Moyal, was released for publication. Moyal shot and killed a Jordanian citizen, who attempted to stab him with a screwdriver, along with the landlord who was present at his apartment in Amman. Moyal’s information was permitted for publication by the censorship after his diplomatic identification was released by Jordanian Al Ghad newspaper.

A picture of the diplomatic identification card that Moyal possessed while in Jordan circulated throughout social media. The identification card issued to Moyal by the Jordanian Foreign Affairs Ministry defines him as an attaché and was set to expire next month.

As reported on Friday by JOL, the Israeli Foreign Affairs Ministry officially announced that Israel is conducting an investigation into the shooting incident “in accordance with the legal proceedings acceptable in these cases.”
