When located in the British Mandate of Palestine during World War II the airfield was used as a military airfield by the British Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces during the North African Campaign against Axis forces.
USAAF Ninth Air Force units which used the airfield were:
- 343rd Bombardment Squadron (98th Bombardment Group), 21 August-10 November 1942, B-24 Liberator
- 344th Bombardment Squadron (98th Bombardment Group), 21 August-11 November 1942, B-24 Liberator
After the war, the airfield appears to have been abandoned. The area today is a collection of agricultural fields. Two single-lane agricultural roads in a "V" pattern are the remnants of the airfield's runways (17/35, 10/28), but no evidence of the support area or runways remain.
