במהלך ההפוגה השנייה, י"ב תמוז תש"ח - י"ז תשרי תש"ט (19 ליולי- 19 לאוקטובר 1948), תיכננו לוחמי "פלמח-הראל" מבצע גדול לכיבוש הרי-חברון ובית-לחם ובכך להסיר את המצור שהטילו הירדנים והמצרים על ירושלים הישראלית כדי לכבוש אותה במלחמת העצמאות.

עם תום ההפוגה השנייה באיזור, אור ליום י"ז תשרי תש"ט (ליל 19-20 לאוקטובר 1948), פתחו לוחמי "פלמ"ח-הראל" במתקפה על הכוחות הערבים בהרי-יהודה ותוך ארבעה ימים כבשו את איזור הרי-יהודה הנשקפים מכאן.

כיבושים אלו היוו את סיומם של מבצעי "פלמ"ח-הראל" בהרי-ירושלים ובכך הבטיחו את חיבורה של ירושלים למדינת-ישראל.
