Kassab is a town in Northwestern Syria, roughly 60km north of Latakia. Settlement evidence dates back to 6kya.

Archaeological evidence shows that, during the Seleucid period, Kassab was a part of an important group of cities that controlled and benefited from trade along the coast of Syria. These cities includes Antioc, Seleucia and Laodicea.

There is no textual evidence for Kassab until the Crusader-era, where it is mentioned in a document of exchange between the Duke of Belmont I and Peter the Hermit. The city became a center of migration for ethnic Armenians during the 14th and 15th centuries.

Archaeological remains within the city are not numerous, and many may have been damaged in prolonged attacks on the city as part of the Syrian Civil War.
