Aqqur was a Palestinian Arab hamlet in the Jerusalem Subdistrict. It was depopulated during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War on July 13, 1948 under Operation Dani. It was located 14.5 km west of Jerusalem on the Wadi Isma'il, a tributary of the Wadi al-Sarar.
In 1863, Victor Guérin found her a village with 200 inhabitants. He further noted that several of the houses contained some stones from an old church, then totally destroyed, but whose location still retained among the inhabitants the name of Kniseh (church). A well, which passed for antiquity although it was badly constructed, was sufficient to all the needs of this small locality.
In 1883, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey of Western Palestine described Akur: "A small village on the ledge of the ridge, surrounded by very rugged ground. There is a good spring on the north east, about a mile from the village, on the same ridge."
In 1896 the population of 'Akur was estimated to be about 132 persons.
British Mandate era
In the 1922 census of Palestine, conducted by the British Mandate authorities, Aqur had a population 25, all Muslims, while in the 1931 census, it was counted with Ras Abu 'Ammar and Ein Hubin, and together they had a population of 488 Muslims, in 106 houses.
In the 1945 statistics, it had a population of 40 Muslims, with a total of 5,522 dunums of land. Of this, 174 dunams were used for irrigable land or plantations, 653 for cereals, while 5 dunams were built-up land.
'Aqqur had a maqam for a local sage known as al-Shaykh Ahmad Sulayman.
