Al-Sakhina (Arabic: الساخنة‎) was a Palestinian Arab village in the District of Baysan. It was located five kilometres west of Baysan on the Jalud River on its way to the Jordan River. It was depopulated by the Israel Defense Forces during the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on May 12, 1948 as part of Operation Gideon.

At the time of the 1931 census, al-Sakhina had 78 occupied houses and a population of 372 Muslims, one Christian, and one Jew.[2] In 1936, a Jewish kibbutz, Tel Amal (later renamed Nir David), was established slightly to the south. The village and kibbutz together had 530 Muslims and 290 Jews in 1945.[3]
