There are six main administrative districts of Israel, known in Hebrew as mehozot (מחוזות; singular: mahoz) and fifteen sub-districts known as nafot (נפות; singular: nafa). Each sub-district is further divided into natural regions, of which there are 50.
The figures in this article are based on numbers from the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics and so include all places under Israeli civilian rule including those Israeli-occupied territories where this is the case. Therefore, the Golan sub-district and its four natural regions are included in the number of sub-districts and natural regions even though it is not recognized by the United Nations or the vast majority of its membership as Israeli territory. Similarly, the population figure below for the Jerusalem District was calculated including East Jerusalem whose annexation by Israel is similarly widely disputed. The Judea and Samaria Area, however, is not included in the number of districts and sub-districts as Israel has not applied its civilian jurisdiction in that part of the West Bank.

Judea and Samaria Area
Largest Israeli City: Modi'in Illit
This area is the geographical classification for Israeli settlement in the West Bank other than East Jerusalem and the former Israeli – Jordanian no man's land area near Latrun. The area has been under Israeli control since the 1967 Six-Day War but not annexed by Israel due to it being inhabited by native Palestinians. Many Israelis consider it part of the Land of Israel, but it is not considered part of the state of Israel by any nation or the UN. See Palestinian National Authority for the Palestinian administration.
