מבצע עוגן
בשנת 1936 הצטרפו ערביי יפו למרד הערבי נגד שלטון המנדט הבריטי. רחובותיה הצפופים של יפו העתיקה שימשו מחסה לשובתים, מחוללי מהומות וצלפים, ונמל יפו הושבת כליל.
במטרה לכדכא את המרד ולשפר את הנגישות, נפרצו שתי דרכים רחבות, שיחד יצרו צורת עוגן, ומכאן שם המבצע.
במהלך שני ימי המבצע נהרסו בתים עתיקים רבים ויושביהם נותרו ללא קורת גג.
הדרך שלפניכם נפרצה אף היא במהלך המבצע וסימני ההרס ניכרים בקירות עד היום.

Operation Anchor
In 1936 the Arabs of Jaffa joined the Arab revolt against British rule during the Mandate period (1917-1948). The crowded streets of Old Jaffa sheltered strikers, rioters and snipers, and the Jaffa Port was completely shut down. To suppress the revolt and improve access, two broad streets were blasted through the city resulting in the shape of an anchor from above, hence the name of the operation. Many ancient houses were demolished during the two-day operation and their residents left homeless The road before you was also cut through during the operation; signs of the destruction are still visible
