Village remains
after destruction by Israelis

The village was mostly destroyed with the exception of its mosque foundation. It should be noted that Intel Corporation (the semiconductor giant) maintains & operates one of its biggest manufacturing plants outside the US (FAB 18) on a looted land. We demand restitution for the dispossessed Palestinian refugees who happens to be just few miles to the East in the slums of the Gaza Strip. Such right has been granted to these refugees base on United Nation resolution 194, which it clearly stated that the Palestinian refugees should have The Right Of Return, & the right to be compensated for any lose of properties.

Ethnically cleansing
by Israelis
al-Faluja inhabitants were completely ethnically cleansed. Please see the Stories & Memories section for detail account of the village cleansing.

Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The foundations of the village mosque and insubstantial fragments of its walls are all that remain of al-Faluja; debris is piled or scattered at the mosque's location. A dilapidated well and a cistern are visible. A stand of eucalyptus trees, cactuses, and Christ's-thorn and olive trees also grow on the site. Israeli government offices and an airport have been built on the surrounding land, much of which has been cultivated."
