Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The few houses that remain are either occupied by Jewish inhabitants or fenced in and used for storage. One of the fenced-in houses is made of concrete and has a wide, roofed porch with two columns supporting the rafters. The surrounding lands are used by the settlements for agriculture."
