Yasouf is a small village whose lands have been stolen by the Israeli occupation to build and then expand the illegal Israeli colony of Tapuah and the military compounds at Zatara checkpoint, on the main Nablus-Ramallah road. The village also suffers from Israeli settler-colonist attacks, especially during the olive harvest.

“In Hebrew, I am told, ‘Tapuah’ means an ‘apple’, a benign name for the place which has been creating so much misery. The settlement is built on Yasouf land just above the massive junction which colonisers call Tapuah Junction and Palestinians Zatara.”
