I saw in previous posts from 2013/2014 that pure Butane in puncture top canisters were the most widely available fuel type, and some posts elsewhere about having a hard time finding campingaz canisters. What's the fuel situation like today? Are there screw top and white gas or isobutane/butane-propane mixes available?

I want to make sure whatever camp stove I get is compatible with the fuel in Israel.

Butane canisters are most popular. You can easily buy them in Israel.
A list stores along the INT that sell them, is in the preface to the guide.

Don't think the mixture is available, the climate is too hot for it.

Are they all puncture top, or are there screw top/clip top cans? All of the stoves I could buy here in America either need a screw/lip topped canister or run on liquid fuel like white gas, kerosene, or unleaded gasolene.

Both puncture and screw type are available.

I've found a butane/propane mixture canister, but not sure if it's available in all stores.

White gas is more difficult to find along the trail. Unleaded gasolene is easily available.

Buying a stove in Israel is an option too.

That's great, it makes things much easier. If there are screw type canisters that use EN417 certified screw tops then american made canister stoves should work just fine. I was planning to bring something small like an MSR Pocket Rocket or Optimus Crux that I know would also work when I get back to the states.

Thank you, screw type canisters make planning much easier. They just don't make puncture type here, I would have had to buy a stove in Israel that wouldn't work over here.
