UNESCO to convene over Israel rift

The UN’s cultural body, UNESCO, is due to meet in Paris to discuss a resolution calling for the protection of the heritage of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Israel formally suspended cooperation with UNESCO last week after a draft report referred to one of the city’s holiest sites only by its Arabic name.
