Symbol of the Harel Palmach Brigade Conquest of Beit Nuba posts and creation of the Latrun enclave
On the last day of Danny Operation, July 18, 1948, the Palmach - Harel fighters climbed to a high peak, between Maale Hahamisha and the Ayalon Valley. From this point on, they watched the Jordanian line-ups in Latrun, managed to block with fire the Jordanian road leading to Latrun and even repel a Jordanian force that tried to occupy the summit, another force from the Palmach-Harel fighters helped rescue Etzioni fighters who fought at another summit in the Jordanians at the Abu Lechem checkpoint.
These peaks, then known as Beit Nuba posts, separated only seven kilometers from the Palmach-Yiftach and Kiryati fighters, who had previously occupied the Modiin hills west of Latrun.
This Israeli control, on both sides of the road that led to the Jordanian outposts in the Latrun hills, and the Palmach-Harel operations in the Jerusalem mountains to expand the corridor to the city, led to the Jordanian outposts in Latrun becoming positions blocking the road to Jerusalem into the Latrun enclave, which is actually controlled by Israel. Until the Six Day War in 1967.
