The pillbox
After the Haganah forces managed to destroy the enemy headquarters in Tel a-Rish on December 24, 1947, the "pillbox" designed here with the help of a German engineer was established here, from which the enemy controlled the Holon area and the roads to it. In Operation "Hametz" on April 26, 1948 - April 28, 1948, the position and the village were occupied by the "Givati" fighters and the place.
