In a rare show of political unity, Israel, Jordan and Palestine have united for a common cause: to clean up the Jordan River.
The river, believed to be the site of Jesus’ baptism, has been suffering from pollution and could be in danger of drying up.
“We invited the politicians and decision makers from the three countries,” said Yana Abu Taleb, a representative from the organisation Ecopeace.
“And what we saw was there was a real political will.”
