The village was known to the Crusaders as Hubeleth, and Khirbat Umm al-Su´ud, about 1,5 km southeast of the village contained rough stone enclosures and traces of walls. During the period of the British Mandate of Palestine the village was classified as a "hamlet" by the Palestine Index Gazetteer. Its houses were built along the roads, especially the one to the spring Ain Yubla, north of the village.
The villagers were Muslims, working mostly in agriculture. In 1944/45 a total of 25 dunums were used for citrus and bananas, 1,971 dunums were used for cereals, while 37 dunums were irrigated or used for orchards.
1948, and after
Kibbutz Bet ha-Shittah and the Gush Nuris settlements were given thousands of dunams of refugee land from Yubla and the neighbouring villages of al-Murassas, Kafra, Qumiya, and Zir'in by the Histadrut's Agicrultural Center in July and October 1948.
Today, the Israeli locality of Moledet is located on part of Yubla's former lands. Walid Khalidi notes of the former village that, "The site and part of the lands are fenced in by barbed wire and are used by Israelis as a cow pasture."
