UN envoy to Middle East says heritage sites belong to all religions

UN Special Coordinator for Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry expressed concern over Israel's decision to include Rachel's Tomb, Cave of the Patriarchs in national heritage plan and the escalation in the region following the announcement.


Serry issued a statement in which he said that "these sites are located on Palestinian lands and have historic and religious significance not only to Judaism, but also to Christianity and Islam." Serry urged Israel to avoid taking steps that betray the trust between the two sides and harm the prospects of negotiations. (Ynet)
