With its neighboring Christian town of Souk El-Gharb, this town remains one of the most memorial places in Lebanon for the Druze and the Chrisitans as a reminder the fierce and deadly battles that occurred during the Lebanese Civil War. Today Aitat and Souk El-Gharb are considered to be the symbol of unity and forgiveness. The Abi Saab's, AL - Timany's and the Talhouq's are three of the most well known families of Aitat and the Aley district. (en)
