Talluza (Arabic: طلوزه‎) is a Palestinian village in the Nablus Governorate in northern West Bank, located 15 kilometers Northeast of Nablus. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS), the town had a population of 2,680 inhabitants in mid-year 2006.[1]

Historically the village of Talluza is linked to the village of Wadi al-Far'a as the Wadi al-Far'a land was previously owned by residents of Talluza, who used it as farmland. In the 1960s, residents from Talluza settled in Wadi al-Far'a and established a separate village. In 1996, Wadi al-Far'a was officially declared separate from Talluza and was granted its own village council under the Tubas Governorate.[2]

The four main families of the village are Al-Darawsheh, Al-shanableh, As-salahat and Al-janajreh (الدراوشه، الشنابله، الصلاحات، الجناجره). Talluza contains three mosques and two separate secondary schools for boys and girls. The village receives water from seven springs.[3]
