al-Qabu Booklet Cover

Excerpt from the booklet:

Town Today

According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:

"The site abounds in the ruins and remains of the houses, and contains olive, almond, and pine trees. The village cemetery is visible on the southeastern edge of the site. Seven graves can be seen; bones are visible in some of the open ones. The village mosque still stands, abandoned and neglected; in the courtyard of the mosque, there is an artificial pool equipped with steps, and behind the mosque there are three wells. A set of stone stairs leads down to the arched entrance of the ancient spring of ‘Ayn al-Qabu. Much of the surrounding land has been covered by a forest planted by Israel."
