Ein Yabrud (Arabic: عين يبرود) is a Palestinian town in the Ramallah and al-Bireh Governorate in the central West Bank. It is located approximately 7 km northeast of the city of Ramallah and its elevation is 800 m. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) the town had a population of 3,000 in 2007. It is the home village of Hamas military commander Maher Udda.
Jordan confiscated lands of Ein Yabrud and nearby Silwad for the construction of a military camp before the Six Day War. The Jordanian buildings formed the initial basis of the Israeli settlement of Ofra founded in 1975. Plans for further expansion of Ofra in this land in 2011 resulted in legal challenges and public dispute. Land belonging to the residents of the village has be used to construct hundreds of structures in the neighbouring Israeli settlement of Ofra.
