El Khalil on World Heritage List (Israel reaction to UNESCO)
The decision to take the old city of Harem-i Ibrahim in Palestine's Al-Halil to the list of World Heritage was accepted by 3 to 12 votes. This decision was declared to be the universal value of the old city of El Khalil. The decision was taken on the request of the Palestinians and quickly accused the Palestinians of the fact that this region is in danger. The Palestinians are accusing Israel of carrying out acts that would damage the historic fabric of the Khalil. Israel has stopped its business alliance with UNESCO in reaction. In May, UNESCO also took a decision condemning Israel's role in East Jerusalem as an "occupation force".
