Palestinian tourism and antiquities police uncovered Roman-era
cemeteries in the town of Halhul, north of Hebron, on Thursday,
according to the department's media office. "As the municipality of
Halhul was using heavy machinery to expand the main road, a number of
Roman-era graves and skeletons were found, and workers immediately
contacted antiquities police," the department said in a statement.
