Kadim (Hebrew: כַּדִּים‎) was an Israeli settlement on a hilltop in the northern West Bank under the administrative jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council.[1]

History[edit]

The settlement, close to Jenin, attracted secular young Israeli families seeking low cost housing and an idyllic lifestyle.[citation needed] In later years, Palestinian snipers used the hilltop outside the perimeter fence to aim into the windows of Kadim homes. In the face of mounting violence, many residents left.[2]

Unilateral disengagement[edit]

During seven years of talks that ended in 2001, the possibility of dismantling Kadim was discussed as part of a peace agreement.[3]

In September 2005, Ariel Sharon's plan for unilateral disengagement was implemented and the remaining residents of Kadim were evicted.[4] The families moved to Reichan, a community inside the Green Line.[5]
