The modern representative of this site, Yaruzn, located four miles north- west from El-Jish (Ahlab or Gischala), is described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (1:203), as "a stone village, containing about 200 Metawileh and 200 Christians. It is situated on the edge of a plain, with vineyards and arable lands; to the west rises a basalt top, called el-Burj [the castle], full of cisterns, and supposed to be the site of an ancient castle; there are large stones strewn about; three large birkehs [pools] and many cisterns to supply water; one of the birkehs is ruined." The remains of a large church in the village are described in detail (page 258).
