My Plans for the coming month

 Website by day - Tel Motila - website by moment (Posted on Facebook on 10/31/21)

Tel Motila is located in the southeast corner of the settlement of Almagor, overlooking the Sea of Galilee, and in the early 1950s was located on the border line with Syria. Next to it, south of it, were two more outposts, the figure outpost and the outpost outpost.

On May 2, Syrian forces invaded these three outposts even though they were in Israeli territory under the ceasefire agreements. The IDF fought to prevent the Syrians from taking over this territory, the fighting lasted about four days in which 41 IDF fighters were killed and 72 fighters were wounded, and the goal was achieved the Syrians withdrew from the territories of the State of Israel. And the border with Syria that was recently laden with Syrian incursions has been relaxed for 4 years.

Although the goal was achieved this battle is considered one of the greatest failures of the IDF in history.

The allegations were against the command Gandhi, who was the commander of the Golani battalion, was not present on the battlefield and commanded the forces from Vila Melchet, in the Sea of Galilee. There was no coordination between the forces on the ground and the headquarters during the battle itself on key issues, such as combat intelligence, artillery targeting, coordination between the combat force and the reserve forces. The commanders sent the soldiers into battle without knowing the conditions of the area and the state of the enemy, and the success of the force in removing the Syrians from the demilitarized zone was due to the junior command. Despite this, the Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. Yigal Yadin, presented Rehavam Zeevi with a medal .....

Site by day - Beit Zayit database - database by moment

The Beit Zayit reservoir is an artificial seasonal lake located along the Nahal Sorek route near the Moshav Beit Zayit in the Jerusalem mountains. The dam and reservoir were built in the 1950s to introduce rainwater flowing in the Sorek River into the Yarkon Crocodile Aquifer, but in fact the reservoir does not fulfill this role, and is an example of how poor hydrological research leads to wrong decisions and waste of public money.

For several winters the dam formed the water lake descended into the Euphrates River in the Judean Desert east of the Sorek River, in the eastern mountain aquifer and not in the western.

The examination revealed that there is a mismatch between the topographic watershed and the geologic hydrological watershed (see drawing). That is, the peak of the crease does not correspond to the topographic peak, and therefore the hydrological watershed line moves west of the topographic watershed line.

Upon learning of the reason for the project's failure, it was nevertheless decided not to demolish the dam, so that the water reservoir would at least be a tourist attraction during the winter days. Indeed, after a flood, the place becomes a center of hiking and picnics, due to being the only (albeit artificial) lake in the entire Jerusalem mountain area. In recent years, however, there has been increasing pressure to remove the dam, which prevents the natural flow of Nahal Sorek, and harms the delicate system of vegetation and animals that live in it.

Site in the day - Givat Tom and Tomer - site in the moment

Givat Tom and Tomer is a botanical garden for the plants of the Land of Israel and a memorial site for the 73 victims of the helicopter disaster. The hill is located on the southern coastal plain in the area of the Yoav Regional Council, northwest of Kibbutz Negba. The hill is part of the open-air museum. From the eastern observation point you can see the ridges of Jerusalem, Hebron and the Judean Mountains, and from the west the cities of Ashdod, Ashkelon and the Mediterranean Sea. In the garden complex there are a number of shaded gathering and conversion areas where public singing events and cultural gatherings are held from time to time. Along the garden paths are a number of rocks in which the names of all those who perished in the disaster are commemorated according to their military units, as well as quotations from the Bible. You can also find reference material on the helicopter disaster on the site.

During the period 1948, the place was called "Hill 105" at no height and served as a checkpoint during the War of Independence /

During the 1980s, a member of Kibbutz Negba, Yoav Keidar, devised an initiative to establish a botanical garden for the plants of the Land of Israel at the desolate site, and even began work to establish it. In 1997, after the helicopter disaster, Kedar decided to establish a memorial site for his son Tomer Kedar from Negba and his close friend Tom Kitain Mana Shalom, who were killed in the disaster.

The site has a rich botanical garden for the plants of the Land of Israel, some were found on the hill naturally such as the Rotem, Lotem and the acacia, and some were later planted such as the goddess and the fig. Botanical information signs are placed next to the vegetation. The site is regularly maintained and new plants are planted from time to time.

The most prominent station on the site is an active upper voltage pole about 64 meters high, painted against a blue background with drawings of 73 white pigeons as the number of casualties.
