Fardisya was a Palestinian Arab hamlet in the Tulkarm Subdistrict. It was depopulated during the 1947–48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on April 1, 1948, under Operation Coastal Clearing. It was 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) south of Tulkarm. Fardisya was mostly destroyed with the exception of a single deserted house.

The Crusaders referred to Fardisya as Phardesi.[2]

In 1945, the village had a population of 20. The moshav Sha'ar Efraim was established on some of Fardisya's lands.[3]
