Brukhin (Hebrew: ברוכין), commonly known as Bruchin is an Israeli outpost, the largest of such communities, located in the West Bank's Samarian mountains about thirty km east of Tel Aviv along the Trans-Samaria Highway near the Palestinian town Bruqin and between the Ariel settlement and Rosh Ha'ayin. It was founded in 1998 on non-private land claimed as state land by Israel as a trailer neighbourhood,and developed by Amishai Shav-Tal in October 2000, within the territory administered as part of its muncipality by the Shomron Regional Council. According to the Sasson Report, the Brukhin outpost is an unauthorized Israeli settlement. The report also said that $785,000 was spent on Brukhin's infrastructure and public buildings. Construction in the village is frozen by an order from the Israeli High Court. In 2012 the Israeli state provided the illegal outpost with official authorization.
