Zion Gate in Jerusalem

This content requires HTML5/CSS3, WebGL, or Adobe Flash Player Version 9 or higher.
Zion Gate is the entrance from Mount Zion to the Old City which was built during the Ottoman period  The many bullet holes around the gate serve as the reminder of the vicious battles fought on this spot in the 1948 Israeli War of independence.

The famous battles here have become symbols of Israeli heroism in the Israeli ethos and every child learns about the brave battles of the Palmach (A pre-Israeli Jewish fighting force) against the Jordanian Army.
