Erosion was responsible for the collapse of these rocks in Icons-flag-il.png Israel.

Erosion is the scientific process in which the wind, water (under either the solid form of ice or in liquid form), and other natural forces which include the dynamic activity of animals and humans, remove particles of rock and soil from their current place and move it to another location.[1] In respect to these possible causes, erosion is sometimes divided into the further processes of water erosion, glacial erosion, snow erosion, wind or aeolic erosion, zoogenic (from animals and humans) erosion, and anthropogenic erosion.[2] The eroded particles are referred to as sediment and can be carried away to up to >1000 kilometers.
