The Khaybar forts were a series of strongholds built in Khaibar. In 629 CE the Khaybar oasis was divided into three regions: al-Natat, al-Shikk, and al-Katiba, probably separated by natural divisions, such as the desert, lava drifts, and swamps. Each of these regions contained several fortresses or redoubts including homes, storehouses and stables.

Forts of Khaybar

Qamus
The Qila al-Qamus, this probably is a modern structure, built on a basalt rock, Khaybar. Although the structures in the vicinity are believed to be the remnants of redoubts and houses from the time of Prophet, there is no direct archaeological evidence, as no archaeological excavations have been performed in the area.
