    Unesco draft on Jerusalem holy sites triggers strong criticism from Israel

    The resolution omitted the Jewish name for a shrine holy to both Jews and Muslims. It referred to the Temple Mount as the Haram Al-Sharif

    Unesco, the United Nations’ cultural agency on Thursday passed a draft resolution that played down Jewish ties to religious sites in Jerusalem, in a decision Israel called “absurd.” The resolution from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or Unesco, heavily criticized Israel’s actions toward holy sites in Jerusalem’s Old City.
