At southern Hebron hills, in the Yatir Forest, a Jewish village from the Byzantine-Talmudic period (4th century).

Near the synagogue of the village, at the top of the hill, are the remains of a fortress dating back to the Israelite Kingdom (from the 8th century BCE). The walls of this square building were five meters thick.

The synagogue served the Jewish minority in the village until the latter’s conquest by the Moslems in the 7th century. It was built at the top of the hill.
