ISO 3166-2:IL

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ISO 3166-2:IL is the entry for Israel in ISO 3166-2, part of the ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which defines codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Israel, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 6 districts.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is IL, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Israel. The second part is one or two letters. The code for Yerushalayim (IL-JM) is assigned based on its English name, Jerusalem.
