Kisra-Sumei ( Arabic: كسرا-سميع; Hebrew: כִּסְרָא-סֻמֵיע) is an Arab town in the western Galilee in Israel's North District. It had a population of 6,700 in 2006, and the inhabitants are predominantly members of the Druze community.
The town is the result of a merger between the villages of Kisra and Sumei and it was recognised as a
local council in 1990.
