Included are settlements with about 10,000 inhabitants or more around the year 2000.
Regretfully not all diacritic marks are shown, this is partly caused by the difficulties with the translitteration from the modern Hebrew language to the Latin script.
See references of name variants of towns are only made if the place in the alphabetical order is a rather different one.
