Aqraba has seen a great amount of conflict, having been under Israeli occupation after the six day war in 1967.
The unemployment has been estimated at 50%, due to the impact of the neighbouring illegal Israeli settlements. But there is much more to this vibrant village, where a short stroll is bound to leave you bowled over by the friendliness and generosity of the residents you encounter.
Aqraba is larger than some of the surrounding villages, with a clear industrial focus.
Population: 8,180 (2007)
