The following news is from the Jewish Press on June 17, 2015.

"Six Kashrut inspectors, overseeing the Kashrut in Israeli-owned greenhouses located in Jordan were attacked on Tuesday by Jordanian workers, according to a report in Kikar Shabbat." "The greenhouses are owned by an Israeli Jew, who established them in Jordan to import Shmittah-free vegetables into Israel."
"Initially, the workers decided to hold a strike, and when the Kashrut inspectors saw that no work would be done for them to oversee, they decided to leave. That’s when they were attacked by the Jordanians."
"Two of the inspectors work for the Badatz Kashrut organization, and four work the Rav Efrati Kashrut group." The kashrus inspectors were unharmed.
