פיצוץ בתים בקטמון
בתחילת שנת 1948 מנעו לוחמי לח"י מן הכוחות הערביים בירושלים להשתלט על בתים שננטשו על ידי יושביהם האנגליים והערביים. פיצוץ הבתים מנע את האפשרות שהבתים ישמשו כעמדות לתקיפת שכונת קטמון ושכונות דרום ירושלים.

Symbol of the Council for the Preservation of Heritage Sites in Israel
The emblem of the city of Jerusalem

At the beginning of 1948, Lehi forces blew up abandoned Arab-owned houses in the "Katamon“ neighborhood-of Jerusalem, preventing Arab forces from using them as attack and sniper posts against southern Jerusalem Jewish neighborhood.
