Um Rash-Rash was the site of a British police station between the years of 1940 and 1948. In 1949, Israeli forces reached the police station and raised an improvised flag of Israel prepared from a shirt and ink thereby establishing Israeli control over the southern-most city in Israel. The soldiers arrived at Um Rash-Rash after travelling through the desert from Beer Sheva in what was to be the last military operation of the Israeli Independence War. A year later the city of Eilat was established in the area around the police station. Only one building survived from the period and next to it is a monument that replicates the moving moment of the raisin of the ink flag. How to get there: The site is situated directly south of "Mul HaYam" Mall in Eilat.
