Galilee embraces more than one-third of present-day [[Israel]], extending "from Dan on the north, at the base of [[Mount Hermon]], to the ridges of Carmel and Gilboa on the south, and from the Jordan valley on the east away across the splendid plains of Jezreel and [[Akko]] to the shores of the [[Mediterranean Sea|Mediterranean]] on the west."
Se Westerna Galilēa, ēac gehāten the "Northern Coastal Plain" starys from north of Haifa up to [[Rosh Hanikra]] in the border betweenbetwuh [[IsraelIsrahel]] and [[LebanonLibanus]].
The Lower Galilee strays from [[Mount Carmel]] and [[Gilboa ridge]] in the south to the [[Beit HaKerem Valley]] in the north. Its eastern border is the [[Jordan River]].
The Upper Galilee strays from [[Beit HaKerem Valley]] in the south to the LebaneseLibaniscan bordergemearc in the north. Its eastern border is the [[Sea of Galilee]] and the mountains of the [[Golan Heights]]. The "Finger of the Galilee" (''Etzba ha-Galil'') is a region of the upper Galilee and contains the setlements [[Metula]] and [[Qiriyat Shemona]] and the rivers of [[Dan]] and [[Banias]].
Most of the Galilee consists of mountainous terrain, at hights of about 500-700 meters. There are serveral high mountain such as [[Mount Tavor]] and [[Mount Meiron]]. The relatively low tempartures and the large amounts of rain puring every year made the Galilee a center of [[flora|blossom]] and wildlife. The streams and waterfalls (mainly in the upper Galilee), along with vast fields of green and colorful flowers made it a popular tourist attraction in [[Israel]].
The [[Kibbutz]]im around the [[Sea of Galilee]] were often by shelled by the [[Syrian army]]'s [[artillery]]. The shelling stopped after [[Israel]] conquered the [[Golan Heights]] in [[1967]].
During the [[1970]]'s and the early [[1980]]'s, the settlements of the Upper Galilee were frequently attack by [[PLO]] [[terrorist]]s from [[LebanonLibanus|Libane]]. In response, Israel initiated [[Operation Litani]] ([[1979]]) and [[Operation Peace For Galilee]] ([[1982]]) in order to destroy the PLO terrorist infrastructure in [[LebanonLibanus|Libane]] and protects the citizens of the Upper Galilee. Up to [[1985]] Israel occupied most of SouthernSouthernum LebanonLibane in order to ensure safety for its citizens. On [[1985]] Israel withdraw to a narrow security "buffer zone" called "Retzuat ha-Bitachon". Up to [[2000]], this was the most unquiet region in Israel were [[Israeli Defence Forces]] battled [[Hizbullah]] and [[Amal]] (which often shelled Upper Galilee settlements and town with [[Katyoosha]] [[rocket]]s). On [[2000]] [[Israeli prime-minister]] [[Ehud Barak]] withdrew entirely from south LebanonLibane and deployed Israel on the international border, recognized by the [[UN]]. Despite this, [[Hizbullah]] continued to attack Israel, and the UN did nothing to prevent this.
