Ma'ale Shomron (Hebrew: מַעֲלֵה שׁוֹמְרוֹן‎), is an Israeli settlement in the northern West Bank. Located about 300 metres above sea level in the Samarian hills, it is organised as a community settlement and falls under the jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,015.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[2]

History[edit]

The settlement was established in February 1980 by a mixed group of Orthodox and non-religious Israelis from the Beitar and Herut movements.[3] It is closely bordered by Karnei Shomron.
