Known locally for its seven springs, Ammuqa also enjoyed renown as the site of the sepulchre of Jonathan ben Uzziel. Rabbi Samuel ben Samson, who travelled to Palestine in 1210, writes that the site was marked by "a great tree" where the local Muslim population made vows "to his glory" and gave votive offerings of oil and light.
In 1517, Ammuqa was incorporated into the Ottoman Empire, and by 1596 it was under the administration of the nahiyah ("subdistrict") of Jira, part of Sanjak Safad, with a population of 391. It paid taxes on wheat, barley, olives, beehives, vineyards, and goats.
