UNESCO will decide if Hebron and the Cave of the Patriarchs to Palestinian cultural heritage

Organization UNESCO on Friday, 7 July, must make a decision about the proclamation of the Old city of Hebron and the cave of the Patriarchs to Palestinian cultural heritage site of worldwide importance. This initiative was made by the representatives of the Palestinian authority, claiming that the area is under threat, and that Israel inflicts damage to property located there, according to the website Walla.

The proposed document was referred to as the Hebron Islamic city, and deny the connection of Jews with him. As the newspaper notes, if this solution is adopted, it will be a diplomatic victory for the Palestinians and another example of the biased attitude of the UN towards Israel.

To ensure that the decision was endorsed by the necessary two-thirds vote of the members of UNESCO. The Israeli foreign Ministry is making efforts to convince countries to vote against this initiative.
