"If Merneptah’s campaign as described in this inscription is mapped out, the most likely location for the ‘Israel’ referred to here is in the central hill country."

That all depends on where Yenoam was.
The sequence of toponyms provided by Merneptah suggests the progress of a campaign - Pa-Canaan (Gaza), to Ashkelon, then Gezer, Yenoam, and finally a people called Israel.
The location of Yenoam is debated, which is unfortunate.
