Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
The site is deserted and overgrown with wild vegetation and trees. All but four of the houses have been destroyed. These four houses still have intact roofs. Three of them were made of cement bricks, and one of hard igneous stone. Iron girders from five destroyed houses protrude from piles of stones
