Bordering the large fertile plain of the Marj Ibn Amir (Jezreel Valley), the agricultural calling of Jenin’s territory could not be a better reminder of its place in the Fertile Crescent. Alternating soft and rounded hills with vast plains, its landscapes display a wholly Mediterranean tranquility that is ripped apart at the mere mention of the dreadful battles which the region staged: from Meggido, the biblical Armageddon of the Apocalypse, to the camp of martyr refugees in Jenin – inseparable from the city.
