Wadi Fukin

Wadi Fukin is an agricultural village located 8km southwest of Bethlehem. As its name suggests – ‘wadi’ is Arabic for valley – Wadi Fukin is nestled in a lush valley at the foot of towering peaks. With the illegal Israeli settlements of Beitar Illit and Tzur Hadasa hemming the village in on either side, life has been tough as residents have seen resources strangled. Yet life goes on for the small, friendly community in Wadi Fukin.

Population: 1,168 (2007)
