Giv'on HaHadasha

Giv'on HaHadashah (, lit. New Gibeon) is an Israel settlement northwest of Jerusalem in the West Bank. Located near Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem and is adjacent to Giv'at Ze'ev, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In it had a population of.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.

Israel confiscated land from three nearby Palestinian villages in order to construct Giv'on HaHadasha:

* 186 dunams were taken from Biddu,

* 159 dunams were taken from Beit Ijza,

* 13 dunams were taken from Al Jib.

The settlement was originally established in 1895 by Yemenite Jews, but they left the location after a number of years. It was named after the biblical Gibeon, in Hebrew Giv'on (Joshua 10:10+12), situated nearby. The village was resettled in 1924, but its inhabitants fled as a result of the 1929 Palestine riots. It was resettled again in 1977 by members of Gush Emunim, and eventually absorbed many Jewish emigrants from the former Soviet Union, as well as many Sabras. Although it is mostly secular in character, it is also home to a few religiously observant families.

Flag of Israel
Israel (إِسْرَائِيل), officially the State of Israel, is a country in Western Asia, located on the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the northern shore of the Red Sea. It has land borders with Lebanon to the north, Syria to the northeast, Jordan on the east, the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip to the east and west, respectively, and Egypt to the southwest. The country contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Israel's economic and technological center is Tel Aviv, while its seat of government and proclaimed capital is Jerusalem, although the state's sovereignty over Jerusalem has only partial recognition.

Israel has evidence of the earliest migration of hominids out of Africa. Canaanite tribes are archaeologically attested since the Middle Bronze Age, while the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah emerged during the Iron Age. The Neo-Assyrian Empire destroyed Israel around 720 BCE. Judah was later conquered by the Babylonian, Persian and Hellenistic empires and had existed as Jewish autonomous provinces. The successful Maccabean Revolt led to an independent Hasmonean kingdom by 110 BCE, which in 63 BCE however became a client state of the Roman Republic that subsequently installed the Herodian dynasty in 37 BCE, and in 6 CE created the Roman province of Judea. Judea lasted as a Roman province until the failed Jewish revolts resulted in widespread destruction, expulsion of Jewish population and the renaming of the region from Iudaea to Syria Palaestina. Jewish presence in the region has persisted to a certain extent over the centuries. In the 7th century CE, the Levant was taken from the Byzantine Empire by the Arabs and remained in Muslim control until the First Crusade of 1099, followed by the Ayyubid conquest of 1187. The Mamluk Sultanate of Egypt extended its control over the Levant in the 13th century until its defeat by the Ottoman Empire in 1517. During the 19th century, national awakening among Jews led to the establishment of the Zionist movement in the diaspora followed by waves of immigration to Ottoman Syria and later British Mandate Palestine.
