Al-Nayrab (Arabic: النيرب) is a town in Syria, to the south-east of the city of Aleppo in northern Syria. With the urban development, the village was gradually absorbed by the city of Aleppo thus becoming part of it as a district.

Al-Nayrab is also an important archaeological site, having been excavated in 1926–27 by Augustin-Georges Barrois and Bertrand Carrière.[2][3]


Etymology

Nayrab or Neyrab is the Syriac word for a flat land or water through the valley.

Al-Nayrab was a village southeast of Aleppo, with the urbanization of the city have been included Nayrab. And is not located only 10 kilometers from the city center and the fact that the land was lying established by the French military airport, and after the independence was that the airport expansion to include airport and other civilian and military is known as Nayrab Airport and has turned his name now to Aleppo International Airport. According to the Syria Central Bureau of Statistics, Deir Jamal had a population of 10,018 in the 2004 census.[1]

After the 1948 war, Palestinians migrated to the neighboring countries which have been receiving several thousand of them and landed in the barracks near the airport that had been brought by the French army to its soldiers and called the place then Al-Nayrab camp for Palestinians refugees.
