Israel denied it but sources speculated that the return of the embassy guard and the ambassador was a part of a deal between King Abdullah of Jordan and PM Netanyahu, which included the removal of all metal detectors and "smart cameras" from the Temple Mount.

Jordan initially said the guard could only leave after an investigation, while Israel said he enjoyed diplomatic immunity.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry had no comment.

On Sunday, the Israeli guard was attacked by a Jordanian carpenter installing furniture in his apartment near the embassy.

"All are in good health", the Israeli Prime Minister's Office said, adding that the diplomats' return "was made possible by the close cooperation that took place in the last 24 hours between Israel and Jordan". In response, Israel installed metal detectors at the site, a move that incensed the Muslim world.

The head of the Israel Security Agency, or Shin Bet, Nadav Argaman, traveled Monday to Jordan in an effort to diffuse the crisis.
