    The Israeli Prime Minister has ordered the evacuation of the embassy in Jordan.

    Benjamin Netanyahu's announcement came amidst fears about possible violent anti-Israel protests at the Amman embassy.

    Although Israeli diplomatic staff leave Jordan every weekend, the Prime Minister took the decision to have vacate the embassy early. A Facebook group planning a demonstration at the embassy has already attracted 3,000 supporters.

    Last Friday, the Israeli ambassador to Egypt had to be flown out of the country after a violent mob stormed the complex .

    Jordan and Israel signed a peace treaty in 1994 and have enjoyed largely peaceful relations in recent years.
