Nusaybin (pronounced [nuˈsajbin]; Akkadian: Naṣibina; Classical Greek: Νίσιβις, Nisibis; Arabic: نصيبين, Kurdish: Nisêbîn; Syriac: ܢܨܝܒܝܢ, Nṣībīn; Armenian: Մծբին, Mtsbin) is a city in Bakur (Northern Kurdistan) inside the borders of the Republic of Turkey.
Nusaybin is immediately north of the border with Syria, opposite her twin city, Qamishli, from which she was separated when the borders were drawn. The Jaghjagh River flows through both cities.
With a history going back nearly 3,000 years, Nusaybin was ruled and settled by various groups, having first been recorded in history as the Aramean settlement Naşibīna in 901 BCE.
In 2009 Nusaybin’s population was recorded as 83,832, including Kurdish, Sunni and Yezidi residents, with a small Christian community.
