The Northern District (Hebrew: מחוז הצפון, Meḥoz HaTzafon; Arabic: منطقة الشمال, Minṭaqat ash-Shamāl) is one of Israel's six administrative districts. The Northern District has a land area of 4,478 km², which increases to 4,638 km² when both land and water are included. The district capital is Nof HaGalil and the largest city is Nazareth. The Golan Heights has been run as a sub-district of the North District of Israel since the 1981 Golan Heights Law was passed; the claim is only recognized by the United States and the unenforced United Nations Security Council Resolution 497 declared the annexation invalid. Excluding the Golan Heights, which cover a land area of 1,154 km², the Northern District covers 3,324 km² (3,484 km² including water).
