Khirbat Iribbin (Arabic: خربة عربي) or Khurbet 'Arubbin (meaning "The ruin of Arubbin") was a Palestinian Arab village in the Upper Galilee, located 23 km (14 mi) northeast of the city of Acre. In 1945, it had a built-up land area of over 2,000 dunums and a population of 360 Arab Muslims.
In 1944/45, the village (including Arab al-Aramisha, Jurdayh and Khirbat Idmith) had a population of 360. A total of 2,637 dunums of village land were used for cereals, and 16 dunums were irrigated or used for orchards.
1948 and aftermath
The Israeli settlement of Goren, founded 1950, close to village land, is south of the village site. Adamit was founded in 1958 on village land, to the west of the village site. The Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi described the village site in 1992: "The site is covered with the debris of houses. It also has a number of wells and caves. The remains of animal shelters are located about 1 km (1 mi) away, and about 4 km (2 mi) to the east is the rubble of houses used by the Arab al-Qulaytat."
Petersen inspected the place in 1991, and found that the remains of the village consisted of several widely spaced rectangular houses, one storey high. Most houses were made of rough field stones laid dry, but with traces of older coursed masonry in places. The roofs were flat, made of earth on top of short branches, resting on transverse arches.
