Makhul (Hebrew: מַכְּחוּל) is a Bedouin village in the Negev desert in southern Israel. Located near Tel Arad, it falls under the jurisdiction of al-Kasom Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 395.
The village was established following Government Resolution 881 on 29 September 2003, which created eight new Bedouin settlements (seven of which were to be located in the now defunct Abu Basma Regional Council). After being named Mar'it (Hebrew: מרעית) during the planning states, the village's name was chosen by Bedouins, and is taken from the Cahol stream and Cahol ruins nearby.
