It has a population of about 3,000 people, 75% of whom are of Sunni Turkish origin. Christians comprise the remainder (80% are Greek Orthodox, and 20% are Maronite). Due to its Turkish ethnic links, the village has received Turkish developmental assistance and funding. However, its Turkish links are not as strong as the nearby Turkish-populated village of Kouachra. In 1966 the village had a population of about 300 people, and it was famous for producing Akkar carpets, which were home-produced by the local women.
