The Palestinian Authority says it will ask to have additional religious occupied West Bank sites recognized by UNESCO as endangered World Heritage sites.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki named a site holy to Muslims and Jews in Hebron where biblical patriarchs and their wives are buried, and Mount Gerizim near Nablus.
Last week, UNESCO approved Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity as an endangered site in a move Palestinians hailed as a key step toward statehood.
Malki said the church's recognition was the start of a "long term project."
