Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
Stone rubble provides the only indication of the village's location. The fenced-in site is used as a cow pasture, and mulberry and fig trees and cactuses grow on it. The surrounding lands are used by the residents of Kefar Qish and are planted in vegetables and almond trees. Parts of the lower wadis are also fenced in
