In the New7Wonders: Cities competition, which aims to highlight the seven wonders of cities around the world, Jerusalem is currently the top-ranked city in the Middle East.

Tel Aviv is ranked third, and Bethlehem and Jericho, listed in Palestine, both made the top ten. Tehran is ranked number 12.

Starting in January, more than 1200 cities in 220 countries were nominated for the competition. Last week, the campaign whittled down the entries to a little over 300. The numbers will be further pared in November and December, and the winners of the New7Wonders: Cities will be announced in December 2013.

Israel mounted an intense campaign to be awarded one of the coveted New7Wonders of Nature in November, but lost in the last stage of voting.
