Janet Jackson, 48, is the youngest child of the famed Jackson family, and a sister of late king of pop Michael Jackson.

In her recent visit to occupied Palestine as part of her work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Jackson visited a school in Yata, a Palestinian city south of Hebron.

She posted a photo from her visit on her Twitter account saying: "Peace. Yatta High School, West Bank with @UNICEF. Beautiful Palestinian students."

Shortly before that, she posted a photo from her visit to a herding family. She commented on Twitter: "Peace. A group of young Palestinian boys from a herding family in Bi'r al 'Id, South Hebron Hills, with @UNICEF."

Jackson's visit was not advertised beforehand. She entered the West Bank from Jordan where she visited the Zatari and Syrian refugees camps. "With @UNICEF Syria’s beautiful children. Their openness and love... so wonderful," she commented next to the photo on Twitter.
