After a few centuries, it was abandoned for a second settlement established in 6800 BC close by.[3] ʿEin as-Sulṭān camp was established in 1948, on 870 dunums of arid land below the Mount of Temptation. Just before the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict, the camp had accommodated some 20,000 refugees. During the hostilities the majority of the refugees fled across the Jordan River to Jordan.[4] In 1987 the authorities tried to expel as many of the refugees as they could. The US reports state that the refugees were suffering from "deteriorating economic circumstances".[5] Today, ʿEin Sulṭān has a small population of only 1,732 registered refugees. Some non-refugees have moved onto the camp's lands and built illegal homes as there is over-crowding and Israel authorities controls the issuing of building permits.[6][7] The Crusaders improved the water mills at Ein as Sultan to crush sugar cane in tawahin es-sukkar (sugar mills) and exported the sugar to Jerusalem.[8][9] The Crusaders are credited with introducing sugarcane production to the city.[10] Water Water scarcity is a major problem in this arid area, especially during the summer. The springs Ein as-Sultan, Ayn al-Nuway'mia and Ayn al Duyuk were utilised during the Roman occupation for irrigation to cultivate the land.[11] After 1975 the water from the spring Ein as-Sultan, was collected in 4 small basins.[5] UNRWA supplies Ein Sultan with water by pumping it from a nearby spring. The out fall of spring is close to Tell el-Sultan, the site of ancient Jericho.[12] During the summer months, water shortages in the camp cause tremendous hardship for the refugees.[13] However, the Israeli water company Mekorot has become the main supplier of water to the camp after Israel took control of water sources.[6][7] Following the signing of the Cairo Agreement in 1994 and Israeli army redeployment, the camp came under the control of the Palestinian National Authority.[6] In 2002, two stories were added to Ein Sultan School, including a new library, multi-purpose room, additional three class rooms and computer lab.
