Tayasir is an attractive village with some impressive historic buildings and a shiny new mosque. Located 3km northeast of Tubas, the governorate capital, it is essentially an agricultural village. In fact, agriculture accounts for about 80% of Tayasir’s active labour force.
There are various retail and grocery stores dotted throughout the village too, as well as one government-run health clinic. However, for most services residents travel to nearby Tubas. On the edge of Tayasir there is a rather picturesque site of crumbling stone houses which overlooks the valley below, where the slopes are speckled with green sprigs of cactus.
