Israel

Officially, the State of Israel, is a country in the Middle East located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest.

Even though Israel is a small country, it is home to a variety of geographic features, from the Negev desert in the south to the mountain ranges of the Galilee, Carmel, and the Golan in the north. 70% of the nation's population are housed on The Israeli Coastal Plain on the shores of the Mediterranean

Temperatures in Israel vary widely, especially during the winter. The more mountainous regions can be windy, cold, and sometimes snowy, meanwhile, coastal cities, have a typical Mediterranean climate with cool, rainy winters and long, hot summers.

Israel is considered one of the most advanced countries in Southwest Asia in economic and industrial development. Although they have limited natural resources, intensive development of the agricultural and industrial sectors over the past decades has made Israel largely self-sufficient in food production, apart from grains and beef.

Other major imports to Israel, include fossil fuels, raw materials, and military equipment. Leading exports include fruits, vegetables, pharmaceuticals, software, chemicals, military technology, and diamonds.
