Israel paid 5 million dollars in compensation to the families of the Jordanians killed by the Israeli embassy security guard in Amman in July، said a report in the Jordanian Al-Ghad newspaper on Saturday، Haaretz reported.

Sources close to the three families said that the Jordanian government transferred the sum upon receiving it from Israel. The families agreed to the arrangement، and accepted Israel's formal apology.

On Thursday، Jordan said Israel apologized formally for the death of the two citizens killed last July.

Speaking to journalists on his returning with him from India، Netanyahu expressed regret and confirmed that Israel would pay the Jordanian government compensation for the death of the two citizens، but will not award compensation to the family of the victims.

The Prime Minister's Office said that Israel and Jordan had reached an agreement on the embassy killing، as well as the incident in which a Jordanian judge was killed in March 2014. Israel added that its embassy will resume full activity immediately.
