'Azzun 'Atma (Arabic: عزون عتمة; Hebrew: עזון עתמה) is a Palestinian village in the Qalqilya Governorate in the eastern West Bank, located 5 kilometers South-east of Qalqilya. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, 'Azzun 'Atma had a population of approximately 1,670 inhabitants in mid-year 2006. 3.9% of the population of 'Azzun 'Atma were refugees in 1997. The healthcare facilities for 'Azzun 'Atma are designated as MOH level 2.
The village is ancient, with old stones reused in homes. The mosque is possibly an old church. Byzantine ceramics have also been found.
The place appeared in 1596 Ottoman tax registers as 'Azzun, being in the Nahiya of Jabal Qubal of the Liwa of Nablus. It had a population of 29 households and 2 bachelors, all Muslim. The villagers paid taxes on wheat, barley, summercrops, olives, goats and beehives.
When the French explorer Victor Guérin visited the place in 1870 it was described it as a large Arab village, then deserted. Many small, square houses were still partly standing, and near the mosque he noticed old columns and large stone from older buildings. Old fig trees and beautiful mimosa were scattered through the ruins. In The Survey of Western Palestine (1882), it is also described as a "ruined village".
