Israel is divided into four regions: the coastal plain, the central hills, the Jordan Rift Valley, and the Negev Desert.
In the north of this region lie the mountains and hills of Upper Galilee and Lower Galilee; farther to the south are the Samarian Hills with numerous small, fertile valleys; and south of Jerusalem are the mainly barren hills of Judea.
