It refers to the Philistines who also lived in ancient Palestine, and with whom the Jews in ancient times had a less than friendly relationship. Judea referred to only a part of that area where the Jews were a majority. But although many people in today's Israel claim the whole of present-day Palestine as being 'their' ancestral land of Judea and Samaria, the historical fact is the the ancient Jews shared that land with several other tribes at the time (like amongst others, the Philistines and the Samaritans) and were a minority or even hardly present in several parts and cities of ancient Palestine.
