This site was the main security point in the defense of Kfar Ono before the establishment of the state. The tower was used for observation and to maintain signal contact with nearby and distant localities.
At the foot of the tower was a defensive position that protected the village from the southeast.
The members of the village who belonged to the Haganah organization were assisted in guarding and defending the place by the Haganah members from Gush Dan.
