UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Friday voted to include the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem as an endangered World Heritage site under the name of Palestine.

The committee voted 13 to six, with two abstentions, surpassing the two-thirds majority needed to pass the measure.



Israel views the move as the latest PA attempt to unilaterally pursue statehood at the UN in place of a final-status agreement.
