Info The "Tombs of the Children of Israel" are huge stone structures which rise from a rocky plateau overlooking Wadi Qelt. The megaliths, measuring 15m by 3m form rectangular walled structures, two or three rows of whose gigantic, rough-hewn stones are still carefully in place. There were originally five, but one was demolished to make way for the Ramallah bypass road erected in the late 1980s.
