About this image
  Population density by geographic region, sub-district and district (thicker border indicates higher tier).

There are six main administrative districts of Israel, known in Hebrew as mehozot (מחוזות; singular: mahoz) and fifteen sub-districts known as nafot (נפות; singular: nafa). Each sub-district is further divided into natural regions, of which there are 50.

The figures in this article are based on numbers from the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics and so include all places under Israeli civilian rule including those Israeli-occupied territories where this is the case. Therefore, the Golan sub-district and its four natural regions are included in the number of sub-districts and natural regions even though it is not recognized by the United Nations or the international community as Israeli territory. Similarly, the population figure below for the Jerusalem District was calculated including East Jerusalem whose annexation by Israel is similarly widely disputed. The Judea and Samaria Area, however, is not included in the number of districts and sub-districts as Israel has not applied its civilian jurisdiction in that part of the West Bank.

Currently only the Coordination and Liaison Administration operates there.

  Judea and Samaria Area

Judea and Samaria Area (Ezor Yehuda VeShomron). Population: 327,750 Israeli settlers (for Palestinians see Demographics of the West Bank)

Largest Israeli City: Modi'in Illit

This area is the geographical classification for Israeli settlement in the West Bank other than East Jerusalem and the former Israeli – Jordanian no man's land area near Latrun. The area has been under Israeli control since the 1967 Six-Day War but not annexed by Israel, pending negotiations regarding its status. Many Israelis consider it part of the Land of Israel, but it is not considered part of the State of Israel by any nation or the UN. See Palestinian National Authority for the Palestinian administration. Israeli Civil Administration is responsible for coordinating with the PNA.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
