It had a population of 174 Muslim households and 24 bachelors and paid taxes on an olive press.[1] Guérin visited the village in the nineteenth century, and observed "cut stones of ancient appearance have been used in building the modern houses. [..] About a hundred cisterns cut in rock, a half of which are no longer used, and the other half serve for the wants of the people, reveal the existence in this place of an ancient locality of some importance."[2] Later in the nineteenth century, the Survey of Western Palestine described Yirka as a well-built stone village, containing 400 Druze. The village had olives, figs, and arable land, with a birket and cistern to supply water.[3] See also List of Arab localities in Israel References ^ Wolf-Dieter Hütteroth and Kamal Abdulfattah (1977).
