The southern part of Palestine consists of rolling hills and valleys that open out into the Negev Desert to the south. This region became an independent country when the Israelites divided into two kingdoms, Israel and Judah, in 922 B.C.E. Judah, the southern kingdom, remained independent until it was conquered by the Babylonians in 587 B.C.E.
