Minţaqah (Arabic: منطقة‎‎ [ˈmintˤaqa]; plural مناطق manāṭiq [maˈnaːtˤiq]) is a term for a first-level administrative division in Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Chad and for a second-level administrative division in several other Arab countries. It is often translated as region or district, but the literal meaning is "region" or "area".
