According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The remnants of a wall, perhaps one that was built around the village, are still visible. A shanty that houses an Arab family (whose members probably work in one of the Israeli settlements) has been built on the land. "
