- This area is located to the north of the Early Neolithic (A) site of Ugret El Mahd (8,300-7,500 BCE) and another unidentified earlier site before 8,300 BCE. Camels replaced feral donkeys in transportation in 2nd millennium BCE, though domesticated donkeys are still used in the High Mountains of Sinai Peninsula. The site is close to El Khrazeen area in the territory of the Gebaliya tribe, where Al 'Urayr and Al Aqra' Bedouin families of Awlad Silim quarter live at El Khrazeen locality. The Gebaliya is part of "El-Tawara Tribal Alliance" in South Sinai between the following tribes: Mezena,'Aliqat, Hamada and Bani Wasel, Awlad Sa'aed, Qrarsha and Sawalha, and Gebaliya, in addition to Mawtra tribe.
