An event in the aftermath of the Fall of Minas Ithil — Third Age; see that entry for an overview:
Minas Ithil became a place of fear, and was renamed Minas Morgul. Many of the people that still remained in Ithilien deserted it.

The Return of the King, LoTR Appendix A, Annals of the Kings and Rulers: Gondor and the Heirs of Anárion

Few people were willing any longer to dwell in Ithilien, but this was still held and garrisoned by Gondor.

The Peoples of Middle-Earth, HoME Vol 12, Part 1, Ch 7, The Heirs of Elendil: The Southern Line of Gondor: The Anárioni

... Minas Morgul was ever at war with Minas Anor in the west. Then Osgiliath, which in the waning of the people had long been deserted, became a place of ruins and a city of ghosts.

The Silmarillion, Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age

[South] Ithilien abandoned by Gondor, but a garrison holds the bridges of Osgiliath.
