According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The site and surrounding area are fenced in. The debris from the houses have been levelled, and one can still see building components. Remnants of a house on the east side are ringed by stone markers that formerly identified the boundaries of a home garden."
