Rediscovering hidden Holy Land

Palestinian tour operators defy Israeli monopoly by taking pilgrims to once forgotten churches.

    A number of churches in the West Bank have remained hidden from view, which Palestinians blame on Israel's monopoly over tourism.

    Called the forgotten churches, the Christian sites are not found on most operated tours of the Holy Land. But some operators are trying to change that.

    Christian pilgrims are now able to get a look at some of the previously hidden historical sites.
