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.[1] It is the home village of Hamas military commander Maher Udda.[2]

Land confiscation[edit]

Jordan confiscated lands of Ein Yabrud and nearby Silwad for the construction of a military camp before the Six Day War.[3] The Jordanian buildings formed the initial basis of the Israeli settlement of Ofra founded in 1975.[3] Plans for further expansion of Ofra in this land in 2011 resulted in legal challenges and public dispute.[3] Land belonging to the residents of the village has be used to construct hundreds of structures in the neighbouring Israeli settlement of Ofra.[4]
