Landscapes of Palestine

Here are some striking images that I found today...

Ancient Olive Tree.


Destroyed olive groves in Palestine.

Suba (Arabic: صوبا‎) was an Arab village west of Jerusalem that was depopulated and destroyed in 1948. The site of the village lies on the summit of a conical hill called Tel Tzuba (Hebrew: תל צובה‎), or Jabal Suba, rising 769 metres above sea level, and it was built on the ruins of a Crusader castle.

The village square, which was based on Belmont Castle's courtyard, with surviving medieval structures adapted and rebuilt as domestic buildings and a mosque.
