Khirbet Abu Salah is known of its fertile soil and beautiful nature, and used to be a great area for agricultural investment before the occupation announced most of its lands as governmental properties or natural areas, which deprived several families that work in agriculture from a main source of income.

During the recent years, LRC documented several cases of demolishing agricultural or residential facilities under unjust claims in the area , which left a notable impact on agricultural sector in Tubas.
