This settlement was initially established as a military outpost (Nahal) in 1982, after that, it turned into a permanent settlement in 1983, and is located on parts of Mount Gerizim, specifically on the lands of the villages: Kafr Qalil, Burin, and Iraq Burin.

In another context, the Israeli occupation forces confiscated a Peugeot Partner car of Mohammed Satti Daraghmeh in the Jordan Valley.

Human rights sources indicated that the confiscation of the vehicle took place in conjunction with the bulldozers of the occupation uprooting trees in Khirbet Ainoun in the northern Jordan Valley.

The Jordan Valley is the food basket of Palestine, and it is the area most affected by the annexation project which occupied tens of thousands of dunams of agricultural land.

Several areas in the West Bank, especially in the Jordan Valley and villages adjacent to the settlements, are under constant attack with the aim of confiscating more lands, building a settlement road, and displacing the population.
