World’s Oldest Woman Found in Israel…….

It became known by accident that Israeli, Mariam Amash, from the northern Arab town of Jisr az-Zarqa happens to be the world’s oldest person. The grand lady is supposedly 120 years old.

“According to Mrs Amash, she was born 120 years ago – a claim, if confirmed, that would make her the oldest person in the world.
The Guinness Book of Records currently lists 114-year-old Edna Parker of Shelbyville, Indiana, as holding the title.


The Israeli authorities say they issued the identity card based on a birth document issued by the Turkish authorities who ruled the region at the time. Mrs Amash, of Bedouin descent, says that the secret to her longevity is a healthy diet – she eats lots of vegetables.
