List of cities in Israel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Israeli cities in this list are the cities in Israel, and Israeli settlements with city status in the occupied West Bank; Jerusalem includes the annexed eastern part of the city. The list is based on the current index of the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS). Within Israel's system of local government, an urban municipality can be granted a city council by the Israeli Interior Ministry when its population exceeds 20,000.[1] The term "city" does not generally refer to local councils or urban agglomerations, even though a defined city often contains only a small portion of an urban area or metropolitan area's population.

List

As of 2016, Israel has 77 cities with populations over 20,000, 15 cities at over 100,000, and three cities (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa) at over 250,000.[2] Two more cities are planned: Kasif, a planned city to be built in the Negev, and Harish, originally a small town currently being built into a large city. The list includes four Israeli settlements in the West Bank, an area outside of sovereign Israeli territory.[note 1]

The following table lists all Israeli cities by name, district, population, and area, according to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics:

Notes

General
  1. ^ The United Nations Security Council,[3] the United Nations General Assembly,[4] the International Court of Justice,[5] and the International Committee of the Red Cross[6] refer to it as Occupied Palestinian Territory. The area and population of Jerusalem includes that of East Jerusalem which has been de facto annexed by Israel and incorporated within Jerusalem's municipal borders under the Jerusalem Law. This, however, is not recognized by most of the international community who regard East Jerusalem as part of the Occupied Palestinian Territory.[7][8]
  2. ^ a b c d Located in the Israeli-occupied territories.
  3. ^ Tel Be'er Sheva, remains of the ancient town, lies east of the modern city.
