The minimum number length (excluding the country code) is 8 digits, and the maximum is 9 digits.
Note: The Ministry of Communication has instituted a "number portability" policy to allow easy switch between service providers. This policy dictates that a subscriber can transfer phone service to another operator without changing phone number. Therefore, a phone number prefix does not necessarily indicate the current operator for the specific phone number.
Codes for international telephony operators
In Israel there are several international telephony operators. When dialing an international call from Israel, a prefix code of the form "01X" is added before the country code.
In brief, to dial a number abroad: Service provider code + country code + area code + number
