Muhammed Tuleib
Beside Qasr el-Lebekha, another military installation marked the presence of an east-west direction. This lies more to the east and is now called Ezbet Muhammed Tuleib. The fort appears to have been heavily modified already in the early stage of its existence, and at some point may have lost its military function. It certainly underwent several modifications down to the Islamic period. Evidence of qanats, fields, domestic and industrial areas are to be found here. At least two cemeteries, one to the east, and one to the west, are associated with the site.

Compare the picture on the left, taken in 2001, to that on the right, take in 2004. There is clearly less sand obscuring and surrounding the building (RKM).
