A village in the Nablus governorate, with 3,000 residents. They owned some 18,000 dunams, 500 dunams of which the village itself was built. However, after the settlement of Migdaleim annexed a large part of their land, their area was reduced to only 2,000 dunams.

On July 31, 2015, two houses in the town were torched with petrol bombs.  Sa'ad and Riham Dawabsha, and their infant, Ali Sa'ad Dawabsha, were burned to death. Another son was seriously injured. "Revenge" and "King Messiah" were spray painted on the walls of the house. The trial of the arsonist, the settler Amiram Ben Uliel, is still underway (2019), and a plea bargain was signed in May 2018 with the minor who participated in the planning of the arson. 

The closureinfo-icon imposed by the army, the poor roads that they are forced use due to the lack of paving permits from the Civil Administrationinfo-icon, along with the lack of public transportation, all these difficulties cut off the village from nearby Nablus and Ramallah.
