Sahl Arraba

Sahl Arraba (Hebrew: Emek Dotan), also Dothan Valley, is a fertile tectonic valley in the northern West Bank.

Emek Dotan is mentioned in the Bible as the site where Joseph was sold by his brothers.[1]

The region is about eleven kilometers long and four kilometers wide. There are several Palestinian towns located near in and around the valley, including Arrabah, Bir al-Basha, Burqin, Yabad, Qabatiya and Kufeirit.[2]
