בתי בלד א-שייח’ ופעולת התגמול של ה"הגנה"

בליל 31.12.1947 - 1.1.1948 ביצע ארגון ה"הגנה" פעולת תגמול נגד הכפרים בלד א-שייח’ וחוואסה, שחלק מתושביהם היו שותפים לטבח בבתי הזיקוק שבו נרצחו 39 יהודים ב־ 30 בדצמבר 1947.
המבנה במיקום זה שימש למסחר בקומה התחתונה (עם מבנים סמוכים מחוברים) בתקופת בלד א-שייח’ ובהמשך בתקופת תל חנן. בקומה השנייה מאוחר יותר שכנו משרדי מפא"י וחלל לאירועים.
בפעולה נפלו חנן זלינגר, חיים בן דור ועמוס גלילי ז"ל. הנופלים הונצחו בעיר נשר על ידי קריאת שכונות על שמם: תל חנן, בן דור וגבעת עמוס.
בתחילת שנות ה-50 של המאה ה-20 הותקן במקום לוח הנצחה לחנן זלינגר ולחיים בן דור על קיר הבית. גננות נהגו לבוא למקום בערב יום הזיכרון עם ילדי הגן. המבנה נהרס בתחילת שנות ה-90 של המאה ה -20.

[It is interesting that Amos Galili’s name does not appear on this sign, it is possible that Galili was not a member of the Palmach]

THE HOUSES OF BALAD ASH-SHAYKH AND THE HAGANAH RETALIATION
On the night of December 31, 1947 - January 1, 1948, the Haganah carried out retaliatory action against the villages of Balad a-Sheikh and Hawasa, some of whose residents were involved in the massacre at the refineries where 39 Jews were murdered on December 30, 1947.
The building at this location was used for commerce on the lower floor (with adjacent buildings attached) during the Balad a-Sheikh period and later during the Tel Hanan period. On the second floor later were Mapai offices and events space.
Hanan Zellinger, Chaim Ben Dor and the late Amos Galili fell in the action. The fallen were commemorated in the city of Nesher by naming neighborhoods after them: Tel Hanan, Ben Dor and Givat Amos.
In the early 1950s, a memorial plaque to Hanan Zellinger and Chaim Ben Dor was installed on the wall of the house. Gardeners used to come to the place on the eve of Memorial Day with the kindergarten children. The building was demolished in the early 1990s.
