Report: Jewish tourists in Jordan assaulted


(JTA) — A group of kipah-clad Jewish tourists in Jordan reportedly was harassed and attacked by locals.

Arab media reported that Jordanians in the town of Al Karak grew agitated Monday when they saw a few Jewish men wearing head coverings in the local market. They threw shoes at them and chased them away, Ynet reported, citing the Jordanian daily Al Arab al Youm.

The Anti-Defamation League described the incident as concerning and called on the Jordanian government to investigate.
