WHERE IS ISRAEL?
Realistically Israel is located in the western part of Asia but truly a Middle East nation, Culturally it’s more of Jewish and Arab and sports-wise a European country. What a contradiction.
Due to the political and religion volatility of the area Israel remains a dangerous place to visit and visitors to the area must be very careful. Know that you cannot be free touring the area, hence expects some form of restrictions and teleguiding wherever you go.
When you’re in Isreal it’s advisable whenever you go out always go with all your travel documents you may need them on demand, from time to time.
