 village of Susya, West Bank, Palestine

Susya is the site of an ancient Jewish village in the southern Judaean Mountains of the West Bank, a Palestinian village established by the 1830s and a religious communal Israeli settlement under the jurisdiction of Har Hebron Regional Council established in 1983.


The Palestinian community has a population of 250 residents as of 2013. The Israeli settlement was established between May and September 1983 on 1,800 dunams of land. It had a population of 737 in 2006. The Israeli government in a petition to the High Court, has proposed demolishing the village and removing its inhabitants to Yatta,citing archaeological reasons.


The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
