Sal'it (Hebrew: סַלְעִית‬, lit. Wheatear) is an Israeli settlement organized as a moshav in the West Bank. Located in western Samaria around eight kilometres south of Tulkarm, it falls under the jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 1,010.

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

History[edit]

The village was established in 1979 by the Mishkei Herut Beitar movement.
