By Petra - May 20,2014 - Last updated at May 20,2014

ZARQA — Former prime minister Taher Masri on Monday highlighted Jordan’s efforts to safeguard Islamic and Christian sites in Jerusalem and confront Israeli schemes seeking to Judaise the holy city.

Delivering an address at a festival on supporting Jerusalem organised by the Zarqa forum for culture and arts, Masri criticised UNESCO for not performing its duty in property preserving holy sites and Palestinian heritage, recalling Jordan’s efforts which led to adding Jerusalem’s old city to UNESCO’s World Heritage List and the World Heritage in Danger list.
