On Wednesday a committee of experts from several Arab countries met in Amman, Jordan, to gather documents that will be brought before the International Court of Justice in an attempt to start legal actions against Israel’s archeological excavations in Jerusalem. According to the Jordanian representative to UNESCO, Moawiyah Ibrahim, Israeli authorities are using archeological findings for political gains. “Israel has used Biblical texts to support their national narrative and have disregarded Arab-Islamic heritage,” he said. The committee will also suggest that UNESCO gets an increased role in the old city of Jerusalem which is listed on the organizations endangered heritage sites list.
