Abu Zaabal or Abu Za'bal (Arabic: أبو زعبل, ALA-LC: Abū Zaʻbal ) (Egyptian Arabic pronunciation: [æbuˈzæʕbæl]) is a huge industrial settlement in Egypt.
The first Egyptian medical school was founded there, in 1827. In modern Egypt, the area is an industrial suburb of Cairo, with an extensive military–industrial complex and well-developed chemical industries.
In August 2013, 37 prisoners died in Abu Zaabal Prison.
