Elections in Israel

General elections were held in Israel, and the current prime minister’s political party won by a very narrow margin. Binyamin Netanyahu has held the post of Israel’s prime minister since 2009. He was also the prime minister of the country from 1996 to 1999, and is expected to continue as prime minister.

One of the landmarks of Israel is the Dome of the Rock. It is a shrine that is sacred to both Muslim and Jewish people. It was built about 1300 years ago, and is located in the city of Jerusalem.
