Khan al-Laban is an archaeological site that was built in the Ottoman era. It has a spring of water which settlers have been trying for several years to control it, the pace of these attempts increased during the recent months, as they attack it every Friday, and it's to be noted that the occupation bulldozers demolished many expansions, gates, and improvements that were added for the site to protect it.
