During a family trip in the Israeli National Trail in the Pora Stream part (31.496871, 34.770928), I noticed these circular rock marks.
Any idea what are they?

It looks like onion skin weathering. It appears in places with large temperature differences between night and day and associated thermal expansion and contraction of rocks on daily basis. That creates weaker spherical zones, where cracks may form later. I have seen that several times in basalts but not limestones, though.
