History

History
The community settled in the area before 1948. After the green line was set in 1949, following the 1948 war, the areas and the lands of the tribe (Adira area) were reduced, as parts of it were now under Israeli control. Those from the community who were in the Israeli parts were expelled in the early 1950s. Until 1967 the community used to nomad from the Israeli side to the Palestinian side. After the occupation of the west bank, they were forced to stay in the Palestinian parts of their lands.
