History[edit]

Ottoman era[edit]

In the late Ottoman era, it was noted as a place named Sheik Zeid, which was presumed to come from a personal name.[2]

British Mandate era[edit]

In the 1922 census of Palestine conducted by the British Mandate authorities, Kh. al-Sheikh Zaid had a population 10, all Muslims.[3]

The inhabitants are mostly belong to the Al-Kilani family. The village was named after Sheikh Zeid Kilani, the late leader of the Kilani family. The village was the site of a 1935 shootout between the anti-colonial leader Izz al-Din al-Qassam and British Mandatory forces, which ended with al-Qassam killed.

In 1945 the population of Nazlet Zeid was counted with that of Ya'bad, in an official land and population survey.[4][5][6][7]

In the wake of the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, and after the 1949 Armistice Agreements, Nazlet Zeid came under Jordanian rule.
