Israel is a country in Western Asia, located on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea. It has land borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan on the east, the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the east and west, respectively, and Egypt to the southwest. The country contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel’s economic and technological center is Tel Aviv, while its seat of government and proclaimed capitalis Jerusalem, although the state’s sovereignty over Jerusalem has only partial recognition.

Israel has evidence of the earliest migration of hominids out of Africa. Canaanite tribes are archaeologically attested since the Middle Bronze Age, while the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah emerged during the Iron Age. The Neo-Assyrian Empire destroyed Israel around 720 BCE. Judah was later conquered by the Babylonian, Persian and Hellenistic empires and had existed as Jewish autonomous provinces. The successful Maccabean Revolt led to an independent Hasmonean kingdom by 110 BCE, which in 63 BCE however became a client state of the Roman Republic that subsequently installed the Herodian dynasty in 37 BCE, and in 6 CE created the Roman province of Judea. Judea lasted as a Roman province until the failed Jewish revolts resulted in widespread destruction, the expulsion of the Jewish population and the renaming of the region from Iudaea to Syria Palaestina. Jewish presence in the region has persisted to a certain extent over the centuries. In the 7th century CE, the Levant was taken from the Byzantine Empire by the Arabs and remained in Muslim control until the First Crusade of 1099, followed by the Ayyubid conquest of 1187. The Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt extended its control over the Levant in the 13th century until its defeat by the Ottoman Empire in 1517. During the 19th century, national awakening among Jews led to the establishment of the Zionistmovement in the diaspora followed by waves of immigration to Ottoman Syria and later Mandatory Palestine.

In 1947, the United Nations (UN) adopted a Partition Plan for Palestine recommending the creation of independent Arab and Jewish states and an internationalized Jerusalem. The plan was accepted by the Jewish Agency, and rejected by Arab leaders. The following year, the Jewish Agency declared the independence of the State of Israel, and the subsequent 1948 Arab–Israeli War saw Israel’s establishment over most of the former Mandate territory, while the West Bank and Gaza were held by neighboring Arab states. Israel has since fought several wars with Arab countries, and since the Six-Day War in 1967 held occupied territories including the West Bank, Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip (still considered occupied after the 2005 disengagement, although some legal experts dispute this claim). It extended its laws to the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, but not the West Bank. Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories is the world’s longest military occupation in modern times. Efforts to resolve the Israeli–Palestinian conflict have not resulted in a final peace agreement. However, peace treaties between Israel and both Egypt and Jordan have been signed.

In its Basic Laws, Israel defines itself as a Jewish and democratic state. The country has a liberal democracy, with a parliamentary system, proportional representation, and universal suffrage. The prime minister is head of government and the Knesset is the legislature. With a population of around 9 million as of 2019, Israel is a developed country and an Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) member, and has the 31st or 32nd-largesteconomy in the world by nominal gross domestic product (GDP). Israel has the highest standard of living in the Middle East, and ranks among the world’s top countries by percentage of citizens with military training, percentage of citizens holding a tertiary education degree, research and development spending by GDP percentage, women’s safety, life expectancy, innovativeness, and happiness.

⁣⁣⁣⁣To all those asking about when travel restrictions to Israel will possibly be eased...I’m afraid to tell you that it’s not going to happen anytime soon. Today the government announced that resuming European tourism in August is off the table. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
Having said that, to all the ones whose relationships are affected by this situation, I have the urge to say: I FEEL YOU. I’ve gotten a lot of blank looks when I told people that I’ll be flying to Germany again to see my other half, knowing that I’ll have to enter 2 weeks of quarantine AGAIN, once I come back to Israel. I don’t expect anyone to understand the crazy things one does for love 🤷🏻‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀

⁣We are entering the 5th month of corona-restricted Israel - we were among the first countries to close its borders and implement a total lockdown. At first our government boasted about being ranked highest on the list of the safest countries in the world (pandemic-wise). Then restrictions started easing and slowly but surely, here we are...with an infection rate proportionally worse than any other country at the moment. I completely fail to understand the logic behind the entire situation, in case there is any. ⠀

I know it may sound irresponsible, but I currently just feel like a little kid who wants to take their paddle board to get away from it all and only return once it’s all over. 🚣🏻‍♀️ ⠀
What’s your approach?⠀⠀

תכירו את הבריכות העליונות שלא מגיעים אליהן בדרך כלל
בנחל ערוגות
*תייגו את החברים שהולכים איתכם לשם*.
*הבריכות: לא במפה שמקבלים בכניסה
* השלטים והדרך לא ברורים,
* הן קשות להגעה
המסלול בשמש בלחץ זמן
אבל הן הכי יפות שראיתי במדבר יהודה וים המלח בקיץ
***
נרשמים באתר רשות הטבע לנחל ערוגות, מגיעים עד שעה 11:00 בבוקר לשמורה והולכים דוך לבריכות שעה וחצי בשמש. בשעה 15:00 מגיע פקח ומפנה את כולם לצאת. עדיין שווה. תגידו בכניסה שבאתם לבריכות העליונות ויכוונו אתכם
