Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The site is covered with piles of stones that lie scattered around clumps of cactuses and fig trees. There are remains of a domed building on a slope facing the village and the small shrine of Shaykh Abu Hajar Azraq on an adjacent hill to the east. "
