Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
A paved street bisects the site. The Israeli settlement of Giv'at Chayyirn lies on both sides of this street, and there is a large cow barn at the southern end of it. Cactuses grow near the village entrance. Stones from the destroyed village houses are used as boundaries between flower beds, especially those lying along the street. Cotton, pistachios, and fruits are grown on the surrounding land
