Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The village has been partially destroyed. The mosque has been allowed to deteriorate, but several houses are still in use. The meeting house (diwan) of Mas'ud al-Madi, which is a two-storey structure dating to the eighteenth century , has been converted into a museum. The school has been turned into a synagogue and the cafe into a post office."
