UN Declares Biblical Site “Palestinian World Heritage Site”

On Friday, the United Nation’s cultural agency, UNESCO, voted to designate the old city of Hebron as a “Palestinian World Heritage site”.

Hebron is the location of the Cave of the Patriarchs (also known as the Cave of Machpelah), where biblical figures including Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their wives are buired. The vote took place despite vocal objections from the United States and Israel.
