Al-Qubab ( Arabic: القباب) was a Palestinian Arab village in the Ramle Subdistrict. It was depopulated in July 1948 during the Operation Dani led by the Yiftach Brigade.
History [ edit ]
The Jerusalem chronicler
Mujir al-Din wrote that al-Qubab was a village within the administrative jurisdiction of al-Ramla in 1483. 
At the time of the
1931 census, al-Qubab had 382 occupied houses and a population of 1502 Muslims. It had a population of 1,980 in 1945. On September 13, 1948, al-Qubab was mostly destroyed, although the school (founded in 1921) and few houses remain standing.
