Tel Aviv is a global city and is ranked 34th in the Global Financial Centres Index. It has the third-largest economy in the Middle East after Abu Dhabi and Kuwait City.The city has the 31st highest cost of living in the world. Was declared city in 1910. I'm afraid that I switched the years of construction of both Jaffa Clock Tower (corect 1906) and Mahmoudia Mosque (corect 1812). Thanks for understanding...
Capernaum or Kfar Nahum was the hometown of apostles Simon Peter, Andrew, James and John, as well as tax collector Matthew. Jesus Christ cursed the city, saying "you will be thrown down to Hades!" because they didn't believe him to be the Messiah.
Tiberias city has been considered one of Judaism's Four Holy Cities, along with Jerusalem, Hebron and Safed. Was also known for its hot springs, believed to cure skin and other ailments, for some two thousand years. It was founded around 20 CE by the Roman client king Herod Antipas, son of Herod the Great. He made it the capital of his realm in the Galilee and named it after the Roman EmperorTiberius, same emperor during Jesus Christ's life.
Beit She'an with it's strategically location at the junction of the Jordan River Valley and the Jezreel Valley, controlled access from Jordan and the inland to the coast, as well as from  Jerusalem  and  Jericho to the Galilee. During Greek's rule the city was known as "Scythopolis".
Church of the Annunciation is a church in Nazareth, northern Israel.

Next to it stands the Church of Saint Joseph built over his carpentry workshop and where Jesus Christ spent his childhood.
Amman, capital of Jordan, is considered one of the most liberal and westernized cities in the Arab world. Downtown Amman is the old commercial area of Amman and is the oldest section of the city. The seven  hills around it were occupied during the same time and formed the perimeter of the young city, most notably the Citadel Hill. PS: apologize for using the term Jordania instead of Jordan.
Petra was established around the 5th century BC as the capital city of the Nabataean Kingdom. Petra is the spot where Moses struck a rock with his stick and water came forth. The city remained unknown until it was rediscovered in 1812 by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.
Petra's most important deities Dushara and al-Uzza were two of the main deities of the city, which otherwise included many idols from other Nabatean deities such as Allat and Manat. Even the former Nabatean King Obodas was later included in the long list of deities.
Petra's largest monument, known under the name Ad Deir, dates from the 1st century BC. It was dedicated to Obodas I and it is believed to be the symposium of Obodas I the god. This information is inscribed on the ruins of the Monastery - translation of the Arabic "Ad Deir".
Yasser Arafat established his West Bank headquarters in Ramallah. Although considered an interim solution, Ramallah became the de facto capital of the Palestinian Authority, now officially known as the State of Palestine.

Herod the Great built palaces for himself on the mountain and fortified Masada between 37 and 31 BC.
