Where is Bethlehem today

The Palestinian Bethlehem, built on the slopes of the Judean mountain, is located in the West Bank region and is considered the holy city of two main religions.
Since December 1995, it has been administered by the Palestinian Authority, which in 2013 took the name of the State of Palestine. Bethlehem is the capital of the province of the same name.

Bethlehem is now in the Palestinian territory of Israel, but hundreds of tourists visit it every day.

Bethlehem is located approximately 775 meters above sea level, 30 meters higher than neighboring Jerusalem. The city is located 73 km northeast of Gaza and the Mediterranean Sea, 75 km west of Jordan, 59 km southeast of Israel and 10 km south of Jerusalem. The nearby cities are Beit Safafa and Jerusalem in the north, Beit Jala in the northwest, Husan in the west, al-Khadr and Artas in the southwest, and Beit Sahour in the east. Beit Jala and Beit Sahour form an agglomeration with Bethlehem, and the Aida and ‘Azza refugee camps are located within the city limits.
