The following list of Israeli cities 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 of cities

Israel has 14 cities with populations over 100,000, including Jerusalem at over a 500,000, and Tel Aviv, which is considered to be approaching global city status.[2] In all, there are 78 Israeli municipalities granted "city" status by the Ministry of the Interior, the most recent addition being the Arab Israeli settlement of Kafr Qasim.[3]

The list includes four cities in the West Bank, an area to which Israel has not applied its sovereignty. Under international law, the West Bank is considered to be, de jure, a territory not part of any state. The United Nations Security Council,[4] the United Nations General Assembly,[5] the International Court of Justice,[6] and the International Committee of the Red Cross[7] refer to it as occupied by Israel. The area and population of Jerusalem includes that of East Jerusalem which is incorporated within its municipal borders, and is considered to have de jure annexation under the Jerusalem Law and is not recognized by the international community.[8][9]
