Abandoned Jewish Village Beit Baws, Yemen

10 km away from new districts of Sana there is an abandoned village called Beit Baws. Locals like to climb high peaks and enjoy beautiful views, sometimes in couples, sometimes in whole families.

Like many other villages this one is built on the high peak for better defence from enemies.

Lower part of the soil the village was built on is green.

Local children like to be photographed.

Not only the Jews used to live in the village, but Arabs too. Today it is empty and most houses are demolished.

However some houses are still inhabited, like these ones, located lower, at the foot of the hill.
