Zayta is a small town in the Tulkarem governorate, in the eastern West Bank. It is an attractive place with big, open streets lined with a multitude of small, quirky shops. There are old ruins peppered throughout the town and a large timber yard which employs many of Zayta’s residents. The central mosque boats an eye-catchingly beautiful dome while a picturesque landscape of undulating fields and forests stretches out in all directions away from the town.

Population: 2,582 (2007)
