Shuafat

Shuafat (Arabic: شعفاط) is a Palestinian town that has become an Arab suburb of northeastern Jerusalem.[1]

It has been a site of intermittent habitation since 2000 BCE, and an early Canaanite settlement at the site is believed to be called Dersophath.[1]

Shuafat was to be the most northernmost point of the corpus separatum proposed in 1947. Before the 1967 Six-Day War it was an independent village, it was subsequently incorporated into the municipal area of Jerusalem.The most well known family in Shuafat is a Palestinian family by the name of Abukhadyr.
