The largest town in the so-called J2 area of Jerusalem Governorate, right in the middle between Jerusalem and Ramallah, near Beit Hanina and Jaba' with a population of 20,359 according to the 2007 Census. Jordanian authorities operated a postal agency between 28.02.1966 and 3.06.1967. An Israeli military occupation force post office existed from 1990. The PNA office was supposedly closed in April 1995, though I have not seen any evidence it ever actually operated. Nearest operating PNA post office is Ber Nabala to the W. The new PNA post office (near al-Fares school in the N of the city) was ceremonially (re-)opened on 10.10.2013.
