Israel is a country in Western Asia, situated at the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It shares land borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan on the east, the Palestinian territories comprising the West Bank and Gaza Strip on the east and southwest, respectively, and Egypt and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south. It contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area.

The country is home to surviving Jews who escaped the holocaust during World War II. The United States is the primary military supplier of the IDF, and hence, is why Israel survived despite being surrounded by hostile Arab Nations.

World War III Edit

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) were presumably placed on high alert just in case of an attack on the Soviet Union, Iran, or any Arab nations. This would indicate that the rest of the IDF have withdrew from the Palestinian territories in order to protect the rest of the nation.
