According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The stone rubble of houses, covered with dirt, bushes, and thorny shrubs, is visible. Clusters of cactus cover a large portion of the site. A few meters to the north of this tree there are stones strewn among the cactus plants; these most likely are the remains of the village cemetery. At the southern edge of the site, in the wadi, are the walls of a house with stone floors."
