Abu Qbeis Castle

The castle's oldest information goes to Roman times, but apparently nowadays' structure is back to Byzantine area from 10-th century.
The castle moved from hand to hand, from Aleppean Arab princes to Ayubids, Mameluks, then it is not mentioned if Mongols also destroyed it? But it was neglected thereafter.
What is seen is Byzantine firm structure with Arab period additions.
