Ammunition Hill

Ammunition Hill is the main official memorial symbolizing the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem. 

The fortification is preserved as it was in the war and there is an underground museum that commemorates the soldiers who fell in the battle as well as an exhibit displaying the stages of the battle of the three brigades, the Air Force and the Central Command who liberated Jerusalem. 

183 soldiers fell in those six days of fighting and the museum of Ammunition Hill is dedicated to their memory.

It was here that many lost their lives and it was the capture of this hill that made it possible for the Israeli soldiers to forge ahead into the Old City and eventually allow the paratroopers to raconteur the Old City of Jerusalem.
