Ethnically cleansing by Israelis

Either in December 1947 or January 1948 the leaders of al-Shaykh Muwannis, al-Mas'udiyya, al-Jammasin, and the mukhtars of 'Arab Abu Kishk and Ijlil met with Haganah representative in the house of Avraham Schapira in Petah Tikva and expressed desire for peace.

Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The site serves as a garbage dump and the original village can hardly be identified. On the thin swath of the hill that has not yet been covered with waste, remnants of stone houses stand next to a gasoline storage tank, along with bushes and cactuses."
