Hayyah Kabirah (Arabic: حية كبيرة‎, romanizedHāyyāh Kābīrāh), also spelled Hayya Kabir (Turkish: Hayye Kebir,[1] Arabic: حيا كبير‎, romanizedHāyya Kābīr) is a village in northern Syria, administratively part of the Aleppo Governorate, located northeast of Aleppo and south of the Euphrates River. Nearby localities include district center Manbij to the west and Abu Qilqil to the south.
