So in Isreal it's flat pins or round pins? Flat pins to round pins adapter may be underrated.

originally flat pins, ordered like :

\N /L
|E

And there were also sockets for 2 thin round pins (like 2.5A europlugs) without earth

Then since the distance between L and N in the flat sockets is the same as in the round sockets, the flat sockets were modified to take both plugs and the round-only sockets discontinued

For many years the normal sockets were with the top 2 holes accepting flat and round, and bottom accepting flat only

Now the Europe Schuko plugs have thicker round pins, so it was common practice to drill the top 2 holes wider to take Schuko (so that the appliance works but without earth connection)

Then around 1989 somebody came up with idea of dropping the flat pins and going for thin round only

Now again the sockets were modified so that the bottom hole can take round too

The round pin plugs began appearing around 2005, when most of the sockets allready were ready to take them (though untill today many socets still exist with the bottom hole flat only, once again some of them were drilled to take the newer plugs)

Today plugs are made round only, and sockets are made usualy with big round holes that accept both flat and round (and as a side effect, appreciated by users and possibly unthought of by standard association, they accept Schuko plugs without the earth being connected)

Note that the flat pins are not made of sheet metal like in US / Australia but like a section of the thicker round pins, with 2 sides filed flat and the 2 short sides left round
