    Giv'at Koach means "Hill of the 28". This hill is located just south of El-Ad, a few km south east of Petah Tiqva.

    The monument was erected in memory of 28 soldiers of the Alexandroni Brigade who gave their lives here during the War of Independence, on July 17 1948. In those days this hill and the neighboring village of Kula changed hands several times between the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the Jordanian Legion. It later turned out that 32 soldiers, and not 28, were killed in battle here, but by then the hill had already received its name.

    When you visit this quiet hill you can view the monument, read the story of the batle carved into a rock, and enjoy a great view to the north and to the east.
