Kadim (Hebrew: כַּדִּים) was an Israeli settlement on a hilltop in the northern West Bank under the administrative jurisdiction of Shomron Regional Council. Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are illegal under international law.
The settlement, close to Jenin, attracted secular young Israeli families seeking low cost housing and an idyllic lifestyle. In later years, Palestinian snipers used the hilltop outside the perimeter fence to aim into the windows of Kadim homes. In the face of mounting violence, many residents left.
During seven years of talks that ended in 2001, the possibility of dismantling Kadim was discussed as part of a peace agreement.
