Israel, is a parliamentary republic in the Middle East, along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan and the West Bank in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip on the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south, and it contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel is defined as a Jewish and Democratic State in its Basic Laws and is the world's only Jewish-majority state.

Palestine flag is not officially recognisedThe Palestinian territories or occupied Palestinian territories comprise the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip. Since 1993, following the Oslo Accords, parts of the territories politically came under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian National Authority; since 2007, the Gaza Strip did violently split from the Palestinian Authority, governing the area of Gaza independently since. Israel still exercises control over significant parts of the West Bank and the sea boundary of the Gaza Strip.
