Khirbat al-Muntar was a Palestinian Arab village in the Safad Subdistrict. It was depopulated during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War by Palmach's First Battalion and 'Oded Brigade of Operation Yiftach after resistance by the Syrian Army. It was located 8.5 km east of Safad.
At the end of the 19th century, much of the land was purchased by Baron Rothschild, and Mahanayim was established in 1898 on former Khirbat al-Muntar land. Mahanayim failed and was abandoned, but reestablished in 1939.
In the 1945, during the British Mandate of Palestine, Khirbat al-Muntar was counted under Mahanayim, and Arabs owned only 52 dunams out of a total of 2,472 dunums of land. All of the 52 dunums were for used cereals.
