Susya (Arabic: سوسية‎, Hebrew: סוּסְיָא‎‎) refers to the site of an ancient Judean village in the southern Hebron Hills of the West Bank that has come to light in recent archeological investigations. The toponym can refer both to the Palestinian village established there in the 1830s, though subject to frequent demolition since the 1980s, and to a religious communal Israeli settlement, under the jurisdiction of Har Hebron Regional Council which was established in 1983. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this
