Status of The Village Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, all that remains of the village:
"The main landmark, the railway station, is now deserted. The railway line itself is used by Israel and now extends south to Beersheba. Two deserted houses (including one belonging to Ahmad Jubayl) still remain, together with portions of houses utilized mainly for storing agricultural equipment. "
