Gush Etzion, which had 4 kibbutzim, was included in the Partition Plan in an area belonging to an Arab state. Immediately at the beginning of the War of Independence, the Arabs laid siege to Gush Etzion. The battalion came to the aid of the Gush and participated in the Convoy of 35 and in the convoy of Nabi Daniel and in the battles that were fought to lift the siege.
