History

History
Originally from Bir Esbea' (Be'er Sheva), they were expelled and became refugees in 1948. Most of them arrived to Za'atra near Bethlehem after 1948. In 1967 a statistic survey indicated some of them as residents of Za'atra. Those that were not calculated into the statistics left during the 80's. Another reason for leaving was the declaring of the area as a closed military zone. The location of Ein Ayoub was chosen due to its proximity to a water source and its grazing land.
