Town's name through history The village was most likely named after the nearby Khirba-town of Sa'ab, which existed during the Roman period - or after a tribe, which settled nearby at the village of Hamadan, southeastern Iraq.
Schools In 1888, the Ottomans founded a school for boys. It finally became a complete Elementary School in 1944.
Archeological sites The village itself was built over an archeological site. It has several nearby khirbas, such as Khirbat al Bazou'ah, located to it's east, which shows remains of foundations, olive presses and wells. The other Khirba is Khirbat Ya'neen, located to the northeast (4km north of Kabul). It was originally an old Cananite Arab village, and contains an ancient grave-site and a well.
Exculsive jewish colonies on town's lands Yavor, founded in 1951 and located just east of the village.
