Conan O’Brien has had a busy couple of days touring around Israel and exploring the country in-depth.

First the comedian spent time Tuesday on the set of the hit Israeli show Fauda. Will we see a guest appearance in the future?

Then on Wednesday the late-night host went for a swim — or a float — in the Dead Sea, where he decided to read some comic strips in Hebrew.

After the salty dip, Conan — in his own words — got his "butt kicked" by the women of the IDF's Caracal battalion.

Not shying away from the conflict, O'Brien also visited Bethlehem and a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank.

O'Brien spent time in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem after touching down in Israel on Friday and continues his travels around the Holy Land as he films his primetime special 'Conan Without Borders: Israel,' which is scheduled to air September 19.
