Its former residents established a new kibbutz by the same name in the north-western Negev desert near the border with the Gaza Strip. Sufa was established in 1974 as a Nahal settlement, its name derived from the severe dust storms which occurred in the area. On 17 January 1977 it was recognised as a kibbutz.
