Arab al-Aramshe (Arabic: عرب العرامشة‎‎, Hebrew: עַרַבּ אל-עַרָמִשָׁה‎), officially Aramsha (Hebrew: עַרָמִשָׁה, עראמשה‎), is a Bedouin village in the Western Galilee in Israel. Located south of the Lebanese border, not far from the Mediterranean coast, the village falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Asher Regional Council. In 2015 its population was 1,604.[1]

History[edit]

Aramshe was founded as a permanent settlement for Bedouins living in the area. The predominant surnames among the population are: Majis, Maz'el, Suidan, and 'Ali.

Over the years, Aramshe residents have experienced attacks by Katyusha rockets launched from Southern Lebanon by the Hezbollah. During the 2006 Lebanon War, Fadiya Juma'a (age 60) and her daughters Samira (33) and Sultana (31) were killed by a Katyusha that fell in the garden of their home on August 5.[2]
