Qaqun was a Palestinian Arab village located northwest of the city of Tulkarm at the only entrance to Mount Nablus from the coastal Sharon plain.

Evidence of organized settlement in Qaqun dates back to the period of Assyrian rule in the region, and it was continuously inhabited by Arabs since at least as early as the Mamluk period. Qaqun was depopulated during a military assault by Israeli forces during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war.
