תחנה 5
יישובי חומה ומגדל
52 יישובים יהודיים חקלאיים הוקמו ברחבי הארץ - בין השנים 1936-1939, במסגרת מבצעי חומה ומגדל.

המפעל ההתיישבותי הגדול שהפך לסמל, החל בעקבות מאורעות תרצ"ו-תרצ"ט ונועד להרחיב את גבולות היישוב העברי, לעגן את הבעלות על הקרקעות שנרכשו ולהגן על המתיישבים מפני התקפות. הארגון והביצוע של חומר ומגדל הופקדו בידי גופים שנוהלו על ידי ההסתדרות, בהם: ההגנה, המרכז החקלאי וסולל בונה, שפעלו בשיתוף עם מוסדות לאומיים אחרים.

Translation of the text on the sign:
Station 5
Wall and tower settlements
52 Jewish agricultural settlements were established throughout the country - between the years 1936-1939, as part of wall and tower operations.

The large settlement enterprise that became a symbol, began in the wake of the events of 1936-39 and was intended to expand the boundaries of the Jewish settlement, anchor ownership of the purchased land and protect the settlers from attacks. The organization and execution of the material and tower were entrusted to bodies managed by the Histadrut, including: the Haganah, the agricultural center and Solel Boneh, which operated in cooperation with other national institutions.
