'Azza, [also spelled 'Azzeh, 'Azzah or 'Alazzeh] (Arabic: مخيم العزة) or Beit Jibrin (Arabic: مخيم بيت جبرين) is a Palestinian refugee camp in the Bethlehem Governorate located within the city of Bethlehem. It is the smallest refugee camp between the 59 refugee camps in the West Bank and the other Arab countries. It was established in 1950 on an area of 20 dunams and receives services from UNRWA workers based in nearby Aida camp, but inside the camp there are no medical or educational services, so it was fused with the Aida camp to receive services.
The camp is named after a prominent Arab family from the depopulated village of Bayt Jibrin west of the Hebron Hills in present-day Israel. The UNRWA recorded a population of 2,025 in 2005, while the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics projected a population of 1,750 in 2006.
