UNESCO could declare Bethlehem World Heritage Site

When a State becomes a member of UNESCO, they sign the World Heritage Convention, which governs the locations of World Heritage Sites.As Palestine is now entitled to adhere to all conventions, they may submit nominations for the World Heritage List.Until now it hasn?t been possible to protect certain places and shrines in the West Bank and Gaza Strip due to a lack of recognition and funding. However, their entry into UNESCO would introduce them to the world and help to promote the economies of these areas through tourism. ; AO/AERRJMBN
