Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"Part of the site is a vacant lot. On other parts, olive trees grow, along with cypress and eucalyptus trees that have been planted by the residents of the Israeli settlements. No traces of the old houses can be discerned. Apartment buildings and a small park have been built on the surrounding land."
