Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. al-Bassa' was a Palestinian Arab village in the British Mandate of Palestine's District of Acre. It was situated close to the Lebanese border, 19 kilometers north of the district capital, Akko, and 65 meters above sea level. In the Jerusalem Talmud, the village is listed as one of those lying on the border of Israel but considered to be in Israel for specific stringencies regarding Shmita. It was called Bezeth during the Roman period, and its Arabic name is al-Basah. In the period of Crusader rule in Palestine, it was known as Le Bace or LeBassa. Imad ad-Din al-Isfahani, a chronicler and advisor to Saladin, referred to the village as Ayn al-Bassa.show more
