Good evening!

I plan to go for early March without a tent and wanted to ask dachtchm to light the situation felt in Israel recently.

Are there known dangerous areas and recommended to sleep in a tent?

I'd like to and you think your experience better than that!! :)

Until March, things can still change, but regardless, the tent gives psychological protection only if someone wants to hurt you, so the tent will not stop him and f about the theft.

Now at least I'm not aware of safety problems on the trail, but a few known cases of theft from travellers in Beer-Sheva-Arad-Arad to mitzpe Ramon.

Recommend to try sleeping in campgrounds that didn't close the road passes per vehicle in troubled places, to sleep with Angels trail/schools.

Until now there hasn't been a single case of assault on any background, criminal or security on the trail.
Theft of equipment, water and so has everywhere regardless of population who lives nearby.
Some consideration about selecting places to stay when you're alone and everything will be fine.
-Don't change a thing. On the contrary-the tent blocks you from feeling what's going on outside.

A very high probability, never got to experience in criminal activities on the trail.
In case, when desert campsites try not to spread too much gear.
And save your money and credit cards you during sleep.
The trail is very safe. Was this event stole up thirsty snake a few years ago, but it's a definite exception

All said my predecessor. Add: the tent gives a sense of security, even if it's just a flap.

Equipment thefts were. So when some equipment that is inside the tent.

Always keep valuables inside the sleeping bag.

Not worth to you to proceed to the Tarp Tent?
In March the nights feel much better under the cover.
Bare winter sleep you take a ahatavot even when it's not raining.
Only in the low desert humidity, it is possible to plan for is exposed.
