Biddya, Palestine


Biddya is a buzzing, larger village connected to the industrial hub of Mas-ha. Spread across hilltops, this is a green, pretty and well-kept place, 15km from Salfit. With all the necessary amenities, Biddya is a focal point for the surrounding villages.

Like its neighbours, Biddya has traditionally relied heavily on olives and olive oil as its main produce. The fact there are four mosques, four schools and three health clinics in the village shows this is a lively, happening spot.
