In pictures: Palestinians unveil huge restored mosaic in Jericho

Jericho, occupied West Bank – After years of being buried under dust, sand and insulating materials, the Palestinian authorities have unveiled one of the largest mosaic panels in the world, located in the occupied West Bank city of Jericho.

The mosaic was restored as part of a $ 12 million five-year project funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in partnership with the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.

The site was opened to the public on Thursday after the Palestinian Authority announced the reopening of tourist sites in the West Bank following a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
