Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:

The site is overgrown with grass, and heaps of stones are scattered across it. Aquatic plants grow in the shallow streams that run past it. The mosque is deserted; its minaret is intact but its arches are crumbling (see photos). Mulberry, fig, and eucalyptus trees, as well as cactuses, grow on the site. The surrounding lands of the plain are cultivated, while the moun- tainous lands are used as grazing areas. The shrine of al-Nabi Shu'ayb, on the slope of a hill near the village, still stands as a holy place for Druze pilgrims
