Well as you're probably aware, some good squamate discoveries have been made in Israel/Palestine, inclusive (off the top of my head, at least 2 transitional stem-snakes with not-quite-vestigial limbs). But in general the Lebanese sites are much, much better,
and are more well-studied because of their status as lagerstaetten. There is also amber there which is comparatively old in terms of inclusion-bearing amber, and is very relevant to insect evolution (older than the Burmese amber). I believe amber can be found
in some neighboring countries as well.
