The symbol of Naharim at Gesher The three bridges
The time of construction of the ancient bridge, called the "Roman", is unknown. Its stones are black basalt, some in secondary use. Remembered during the Crusades as PONT-DE-JUDEIRE. The bridge was renovated several times and most recently during the Turkish period. Its name "Jisr-al-Majma" (the bridge of the meeting) probably referred to the nearby confluence of the Jordan and the Yarmouch.
The bridge routed several arteries of the sea route to it and was also the reason for the construction of the fortified khan next to it. The bridge was in use until 1946. After the "Night of the Bridges" the Arab Legion blocked it and set up a position on it, to guard the concrete bridge on its side. The concrete bridge, is the mandatory road bridge, built in the 1930s. It served the Beit Shan-Tiberias road and the branching to the north of Gilead. The railway bridge, built of black basalt stones, was built in 1905 with the laying of the Haifa-Tzemach railway, as an extension of the Hijaz railway, the Jisr-el-Majma railway station was the last on this side of the Jordan and also the lowest station in the world (-247). The three bridges were sabotaged by the "Haganah" forces on the night of May 14, 1948, after the fall of Naharim, in order to delay the invasion of the Iraqi army.
