The Committee for Maintaining the Heritage of the Palestinian village of Western Baqa in present-day Israel has announced a plan to build a Palestinian Museum in the village of Jit, which will be the first of its kind.
Committee member, Ibrahim Mawasi, said the Museum will contain thousands of archaeological pieces which date back to various historical eras and which will reflect different geographical and historical facts.

Mwasi noted that the committee has been working on this project for a long time and had won the support of the local council of the village of Jit and the municipality of Western Baqa.
He added that choosing the village of Jit to host the Museum was based on professional and historical foundations, especially as the village was built on an old hill with a long history.
The Museum is expected to attract visitors from various towns and communities.
