The city is located between Nazareth and Nablus on the edge of the Samarian Highlands, a mountainous range, boasting orchards of olive trees. Grown from the ancient town of Ein-Ganam, Jenin has seen many rulers come and go: Byzantines, Crusaders, Beduin Princes, the combined troops of Turkey and Germany, who set up camps here during WWI, British Mandatory Forces and Israeli occupation. Jenin has been known worldwide as a centre of palestinian resistance and suicide bombings during the Second Intifada. But times have changed!
