I have noticed that quite a number of people travelling to Israel on budget are considering wild camping / sleeping in car as a way of spending overnights while traveling around.
At the same time I have noticed that many "destination experts" here do not suggest to do so and rather recommend hostels or paid campsites. I understand that it is not allowed to wild camp in Nature Reserves (which is fair enough - no one wants to have the most beautiful places destroyed)
BUT, what does the Israel law says? What are the real threats?
Can someone please give me an informed and confirmed answer on the following:
"Is it allowed to wild-camp in Israel?" and "Is it allowed to sleep in the car in Israel?"
What may happen if I just pull off the road and sleep in my car for couple of hours or just pitch a tent somewhere?
What are the risks - will someone kill me, hijack me, will police arrest me, will someone fine me for that?
I would appreciate answers not containing "I think", "I believe", "I have heard", "Someone said".
As there surely are real "destination experts" around I would like to hear a solid piece of confirmed information rather than assumption.
Thanks in advance.
