The District of Hebron
The village was a central target of Operation An-Far, launched during the period between the two truces (8-18 July 1948). On 7 July, Giv’ati commander shim’on Avidan issued orders to the First Battalion to take the Tall al-Safi area and “expel the refugees” encamped in the area. The site is overgrown with wild vegetation. There are remnants of a well and the crumbling stone walls of a pool. The surrounding land is planted by Israeli farmers. A few tents belonging to a group of Bedouin are occasionally pitched nearby.
