The station housed the legal weapons: rifles, hand grenades, machine guns and ammunition.
Hundreds of members of the "Haganah", specials (sworn as additional police officers). Had training on the spot. The policemen were the recruited force of the "Haganah" who were equipped with English weapons and military uniforms and financed by the British government. Most of the "Hagana" commanders in the Rishon Lezion area received their military training in courses for "Hagana" commanders. while serving as monitors.
