Tilfit is a small and tranquil village which overlooks the mightily impressive Arab American University of Jenin. Visitors to Tilfit can clamber over the intriguing ruins at the edge of town to find a mesmerising view point of the large, stylish, spectacular university below.
Tilfit itself is by contrast a traditional, quiet place, too small to have anything in the way of commerce. But its position 390 metres above sea level does mean it benefits from some wonderful vantage points. The principal water source is a well 6km to the west, and there are 35 cisterns in the village.
Population: 238 (2007)
