Sal'it (Hebrew: סַלְעִית‎, lit. Wheatear) is a moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the eastern Sharon plain around eight kilometres south of Tulkarm, it falls under the jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 693.

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

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