"Dror", Lehi’s Headqurter (The spelling error is in the sign itself)
"Machane Dror," acted as Lehi Headquarters, and housed their arms, ammunition and their explosives industry. This structure was named in memory of Mordechi Ben Uziyahu "Dror", who fell during the liberation of Sheik-Badder. Here a tragic explosion claimed the lives of five of the finest Lehi freedom fighters.
