General site condition
Demolished Jewish cemetery that has not been built over. The cemetery site is located on the hill, and is now derelict. Some small rocks resembling fragments of matzevot are scattered around the site. Multiple stones are piled under a tree, but as the inscriptions are gone, it is difficult to determine whether they are from a Jewish or a Christian cemetery.
