Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
One stone building (probably a mosque) stands on the site, as well as several stone terraces. On the whole, however, the site is overgrown with grass and fig trees. Less that 1 km north of it lies the settlement of Yir'on
