The Foreign Ministry received a briefing on the blast. According to several reports, the ambassador was not traveling in any of the vehicles.
Two Jordanian security sources said the attack targeted a top Israeli diplomat in Jordan. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
The spokeswoman at the Israeli Embassy in Amman, Merav Horsendi, confirmed that there was a blast next to a convoy carrying embassy employees.
"All I can say now is that everyone is fine," she said.
