Pop-music icon Janet Jackson was in Palestine on Sunday during a visit to Occupied Jerusalem with her Qatari billionaire husband Wissam al-Mana.
Jackson, also a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, posted pictures on her Twitter account of herself posing with “beautiful Palestinian students.”
She tweeted: “Peace. Yatta High School, West Bank with @UNICEF. Beautiful Palestinian students.”
She also tweeted a photo of her husband posing with a peace sign alongside young Palestinian boys in South Hebron Hills.
Before crossing into Palestine, Jackson visited the Zaatari Camp in Jordan on Dec.17 where thousands of Syrian refugees displaced by the conflict now live.
Jackson rose to fame in the 1970s with her siblings as part of the Jackson Five group, along with legendary musician Michael Jackson.
