Jordan lodged an official complaint to Israel on Wednesday over police questioning of two members of its Tel Aviv embassy and demanded an investigation.

Foreign Minister Nasser Jawdeh summoned the Israeli ambassador to deliver a protest note over Tuesday's "aggression against two staff members of the Jordanian embassy" in Israel, the official news agency Petra reported.

It said the message called for Israel, with which Jordan has a 1994 peace treaty, to launch an investigation and "all measures to ensure there is no repetition" of the incident.

Israeli police questioned two embassy staff over their identity papers during a routine check, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. "They were questioned for a short period of time in the area where police were on patrol."

Rosenfeld said their identity cards and passports did not match exactly. "They were released after a short time when things were cleared up."

He said the incident took place near Tel Aviv in a zone which was in "the middle of nowhere."
