Geography of Israel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1668 words)
Israel is divided into four regions: the coastal plain, the central hills, the Jordan Rift Valley, and the Negev Desert.
In Israel the Rift Valley is dominated by the Jordan River, Lake Tiberias (known also as the Sea of Galilee and to Israelis as Lake Kinneret), and the Dead Sea.
The climate is determined by Israel's location between the subtropical aridity of the Sahara and the Arabian deserts, and the subtropical humidity of the Levant or eastern Mediterranean.
