Kasla was a Palestinian Arab village in the District of Jerusalem. It was depopulated during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War on July 17, 1948 by the Har'el Brigade of Operation Dani. It was located 17 km west of Jerusalem. The Canaanites and Romans referred to Kasla as the city of Chesalon. Kasla has several khirbas including a shrine for a local sage known as al-Shaykh Ahmad.
