Jerusalem and Judean Hills
  • The Yad Lashiryon Memorial at Latrun is the Armored Corps’ Memorial Site. The site’s uniqueness is rooted in its place in history, it was the site of the Biblical battles of Joshua Bin-Nun against the Amorite kings; the site of Judah the Maccabi’s battle against the army of Antiochus and his commander Gorgias, and during War of Independence the 7th Division - the second armored division to be set up during the War of Independence - fought here to open the way through to besieged Jerusalem.
