    On the Yehiam Kibbutz you can still find some of the old shelters that were used to protect the non fighting personel during the wars in 1948, 1957, 1967, 1973, 1981. Today it is not in use, but it is a very close, small, damp, clamy place to spend hours waiting.

    When the fortress was partially rebuilt again in 1738 by the Bedouin Shiek Dahr el-Ommar. At that time a Moslem Mosque was built, this is the entrance to that mosque.

    Parts of the fortress were destroyed in 1265 by the Mammeluke Sultan, Baybars. About 500 years later Sheik Mahd el-Hussein rebuilt parts of the fortress on the ruins.
