Clocks in Israel went back one hour on Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m. At that moment, the time was changed back to 1:00 AM.

It marked the end of daylight saving time in Israel.

In the past, there were problems with smartphones, which were supposed to update the time automatically but often did not. It is suggested that the time zone on smartphones is set to "Jerusalem" in order to avoid confusion
