- Sheikh Badr
Sheikh Badr ( _ar. شيخ بدر) was an Arab village on a hilltop in west
Jerusalemthat was depopulated during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. During the British Mandate of Palestineit was part of the Jerusalem municipality. A temporary burial ground for Israelis who died during the siege on Jerusalem was established there. Under Israeli rule, the hill was renamed Givat Ram. The Israeli parliament building, the Knesset, was built on the site.
Archaeological excavations in the area formerly known as Sheikh Badr indicate that the site was inhabited from
Iron Age IIto the Byzantineperiod (late 8th century BCE to early 7th century CE). Meager finds from the Ummayad, Abbasidand Mamlukperiods do not indicate any permanent occupation after the mid-7th century. The strategic location at the top of the ascent from the coastal plain (or descent for those leaving the Old City of Jerusalemmay explain the long period of settlement in this area.
