Aabbassiyeh (Arabic: عباسيّة ) is a village in the Tyre District in South Lebanon.
According to E. H. Palmer in 1881, the name Aabbassiyeh came from the proper name ‘Abbâs, the uncle of the prophet.
In 1875, Victor Guérin estimated the population to be 600 Metawileh.
In 1881, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey of Western Palestine (SWP) described it as: "A stone-built village, containing 400 Metawileh, built on a ridge ; the ground around it is cultivated for barley, etc., and there are groves of figs and olives. The water supply is derived from a large pool to the north, and a good spring built up with masonry, also to the north of the village ; there are no antiquities, and only a few cisterns."
