Account about Israeli port (4)


I believe the answer is:


'israeli port' is the definition.
(port in Israel)

'account about' is the wordplay.
'account' becomes 'ac' (abbreviation for account).
'about' becomes 're' ('re' means regarding or about).

(Other definitions for acre that I've seen before include "Unit of land measurement" , "amount of land" , "marine location in Israel" , "Levant sea port" , "Unit of area of 4,840 square yards" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
