Archeologists have discovered the remains of a 7,200-year-old Pakistani cotton plant in a small and isolated village in Israel.
According to foreign media, the cotton found in this village is of blue and other colors, while there are other ancient ruins in this village.
In this regard, the American and Israeli universities have stated in their research that this cotton reached Israel through trade from Pakistan.
An Israeli university and one of the authors of the study said, “I think this cotton is not native because it only grows in warm environments and with a lot of water.”
He said that historical evidence shows that the cotton found in Israel is from Pakistan.
According to reports, the research study has further revealed that the oldest traces of cotton use are found in Mehrgarh area of Balochistan, where it was used around 7500 to 8500 years ago.
