Azor (Hebrew: אָזוֹר) (also Azur) is a small town (local council) in the Tel Aviv District of Israel, on the old Jaffa-Jerusalem road southeast of Tel Aviv. Established in 1948 on the site of the Arab village of Yazur, Azor was granted local council status in 1951. In 2012, it had a population of 11,701 and a jurisdiction of 2,415 dunams (~2.4 km²).
Azor was named for the ancient city of Azur (lit. mighty, heroic), preserved in the name of the Arab village of Yazur. The council of the new village named it Mishmar HaShiv'a in honor of seven Jewish soldiers killed near there in 1948, but the government committee in charge of assigning names forced them to change it to Azor on the grounds that preserving Biblical names was more important. However, another new village nearby was later named Mishmar HaShiv'a.
