Lod is a mixed Jewish-Arab city 15 kilometers southeast of Tel Aviv in the Center District of Israel. At the end of 2011, it had a population of 74,000.
The name is derived from the Biblical city of Lod. In 1948, after the Israeli conquest of al-Ludd, as it was known in Arabic, most of its Palestinian Arab inhabitants were expelled. The town was resettled by Jewish immigrants, most of them refugees from Arab countries, alongside 1,056 Arabs who remained. Lod is known today by its biblical name.
Israel's main international airport, Ben Gurion International Airport is located on the outskirts of the city.
