This village includes a number of families that belong to Abbad clans, such as Masalha and Ramadneh. The land was accordingly owned mainly by the Abbad tribes with land closer to the river belonging to Al Masaeed tribe whose land extends beyond the Jordan to al-Jiftlik and towards the Jericho areas.
