Mitzpe Yair ( Hebrew: מצפה יאיר, lit. Yair Lookout) is an unauthorized Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located two kilometres south-east of Susia, it falls under the jurisdiction of Har Hebron Regional Council. It was established by Meir Am-Shalem in October 1998 and is home to 8-9 families. It was formerly known as Magen David.
Mitzpe Yair is an unauthorized settlement that is regarded as illegal by the Israeli regional administration.
In 2007  Peace Now discovered that a police superintendent was residing there despite its illegal status.
Tovah Lazaroff, Yaakov Lappin, 'South Hebron Hills land dispute turns violent', Jerusalem Post 05/09/2008 'this had not stopped seven or eight families from placing caravans on the land to create the small Mitzpe Yair outpost . . Those caravans' placement has been deemed by the Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria to be illegal and there are enforcement proceedings under way against them.' ↑
