Deir Ghazaleh

Deir Ghazaleh (Arabic: دير غزالة‎) is a Palestinian village in the northern West Bank, located nine kilometers northeast of Jenin in the Jenin Governorate. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, Deir Ghazaleh had a population of over 850 inhabitants in mid-year 2006, mostly Muslims with a large Christian minority.[1]

Water sources

The main source of water is the large groundwater aquifer underlying the West Bank.[2] A well on the outskirts of the village, called the Abu ´Ahed well, supplies water to the village and surrounding communities.[3]

Education and culture

A library was established in Deir Ghazaleh under the auspices of the Program for the Social Empowerment of Rural Women.[4] The Deir Ghazaleh Women’s club, established in 1997, offers training course and workshops for local women.[5]
