Palestinian government welcomes UNESCO resolution refuting Israeli claims in Jerusalem


[7/5/2017 10:55:13 AM]

AMMONNEWS - The Palestinian government on Wednesday hailed a new UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) resolution refuting Israeli claims in occupied East Jerusalem and calling all Israeli measures there as null and void.

Government spokesman, Yousef al-Mahmoud, said the vote, which was adopted with an overwhelming majority, comes after a series of previous resolutions all of which emphasize that the Israeli narrative on Jerusalem is fabricated.

UNESCO’s World Heritage Council passed on Tuesday a resolution denouncing Israeli activities in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Al-Mahmoud called on the international community and all international institutions and organizations to "enforce these decisions on the ground in order to lift injustice, oppression and domination practiced by the Israeli occupying power against our steadfast people in the City of Jerusalem and against its Islamic and Christian holy places."
