A Mediterranean country bordering Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Israel's exact borders are a matter of contention. Established in 1948 after violence between Jewish nationalists, local Arab Palestinians and the militaries of the surrounding States, Israel operates as a democracy with both a presidential head of state and a prime minister as head of government. Human rights concerns in Israel include restrictions on NGO and media activities, discrimination against Arab Israeli citizens and the ongoing systematic abuses of human rights by Israeli security forces in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
