Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya is a pleasant village located 20km south of Nablus, the governorate capital. Surrounded by illegal Israeli settlements, the residents have endured many tough years in terms of access to water, land and resources.
There are several small shops in Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya, although the proximity to thriving Nablus means many villagers travel there for work and resources. The village is just north of the Khan al-Lubban caravansary.
