Israel has a population of 8.7 million people (in 2017), spoken languages are Hebrew and Arabic (both official). Designated capital is Jerusalem, [1] the largest and most populous city, but Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem is internationally disputed. Second city and the country's financial center is Tel Aviv, which is also home to all (until now) foreign diplomatic missions and embassies in Israel. The countries which operate Consulates to Jerusalem, generally do not regard them as diplomatic missions to Israel or Palestinian Authority, but as diplomatic missions to Jerusalem as corpus separatum. Most of the countries with consulates in Jerusalem have separate embassies in Tel Aviv that are accredited to Israel.
