List of Israeli twin towns and sister cities

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of Israeli localities, including Israeli settlements in the West Bank, having standing links to local communities in other countries. In most cases, the association, especially when formalised by local government, is known as "town twinning" (though other terms, such as "partner towns" or "sister cities" are sometimes used instead), and while most of the places included are towns, the list also comprises villages, cities, districts, counties, etc. with similar links.
