Template:Infobox Kibbutz

Sde Yoav (Template:Lang-he, lit. Yoav Field) is a kibbutz in south-central Israel. Located between the cities of Kiryat Gat, Kiryat Malakhi and Ashkelon, it falls under the jurisdiction of Yoav Regional Council.


The kibbutz was founded in 1966, and was named after Yitzhak Dubno (nicknamed Yoav) who was killed whilst defending the nearby kibbutz of Negba during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Near Sde Yoav there was an Arab village called Iraq Suwaydan which was abandoned in the 1948. In 2006 it had a population of 210.

Today, like many kibbutzim, Sde Yoav is in the process of privatization.
