Galilee (Hebrew: הגליל‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}, transliteration HaGalil; Arabic: الجليل‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}, translit. al-Jalīl) is a region in northern Israel which overlaps with much of the administrative Northern District and Haifa District of the country. Traditionally divided into Upper Galilee (Hebrew: גליל עליון‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} Galil Elyon), Lower Galilee (Hebrew: גליל תחתון‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} Galil Tahton), and Western Galilee (Hebrew: גליל מערבי‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}} Galil Ma'aravi), extending from Dan to the north, at the base of Mount Hermon, along Mount Lebanon to the ridges of Mount Carmel and Mount Gilboa north of Jenin and Tulkarm to the south, and from the Jordan Rift Valley to the east across the plains of the Jezreel Valley and Acre to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal plain in the west.
