Imwas

'''Imwas''' ( from Jerusalem in the Latrun salient (salient (geography)) of the West Bank. Wareham and Gill, 1998, p. 108. Often identified with the biblical Emmaus, over the course of two millennia, Imwas was intermittently inhabited and was ruled by the Romans (Ancient Rome) (including the Byzantines (Byzantine empire)), Arab caliphates, Crusaders, Ottomans (Ottoman empire), and the British (British empire), as part of the Mandate in Palestine (British Mandate Palestine). After the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, Imwas fell under Jordanian control (Rule of the West Bank and East Jerusalem by Jordan). Its population at the time was predominantly Arab Muslim, though there was an Arab Christian minority.

Captured by the Israeli Defense Forces during the Six-Day War on June 7, 1967 along with the neighbouring villages of Yalo and Bayt Nuba, Imwas was depopulated and then destroyed on the orders of Yitzhak Rabin. Reports of its destruction caused a minor controversy abroad. The residents of the three villages were offered compensation but were not allowed to return. Oren, 2002, p. 307. Segev, Tom (Tom Segev) (2006). 1967: Israel, the War and the Year That Transformed the Middle East, Metropolitan Books, pp. 306-309. Segev, 1967, p. 82. Mayhew and Adams, 2006. Today the area of the former village lies within Canada Park, which was established by the Jewish National Fund in 1973.
