Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"Only a few houses remain. Most of them are made of cement, and have simple architectural features: flat roofs and rectangular doors and windows. One has two storeys and another has an 'iliyya. One house, in the southwestern section of the site, is occupied by Jewish residents."
