The approval by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) helps protect Palestinian identity, heritage and narrative from theft attempts by Israeli occupiers, the politician stressed in a communique.

Shtayyeh thanked UNESCO for approving the Palestinian request during its 16th meeting, currently being held in Paris.

Many Palestinian women usually wear a long dress, trousers, a jacket, a headdress and a veil. Each of these garments is embroidered with a variety of symbols including birds, trees and flowers.

The choice of colors and designs indicates the woman’s regional identity, and marital and economic status, Wafa news agency stated.

Culture Minister Atef Abu Saif also stated that UNESCO’s action is a Palestinian victory in its struggle to preserve, protect and defend the national heritage and pass it on to future generations.
