http://israeltripplanner.com/images/items/755/thumb300_tel_hai.jpg

Tel Hai was one of the first four Jewish settlements of the far north in the early years of the twentieth century, along with Metula, Hamra and Kfar Giladi. In 1920, the area was under French control and Arab gangs constantly attacked Jewish settlements in the area. Joseph Trumpeldor led Jewish volunteers to the site in order to help. Arab forces managed to enter Tel Hai and in the fierce shooting battle that ensued Trumpeldor was wounded. Before dying, Trumpeldor famously said to his doctor, "It is good to die for our country."

The Tel Hai courtyard quickly became a symbol of strength in the face of adversity and of the incredible bravery of these first settlers who put their lives on the line so that their brethren could live safely in these uninhabited areas. There are a number of exhibits and items on site, such as Trumpeldor's room, the dining room, a furnished living room, a memorial room for the fallen  of that difficult battle and more. There is also an exhibition of agricultural tools from the time and in a nearby hall a film about the history of the site is screened. The Tel Hai Courtyard is situated close to the Tel Hai College.

The Metzudat Koach Memorial commemorates the twenty-eight soldiers who died during the 1948 conquest of a strategically-important fort. The fort and observation point is situated in the Upper Galilee and its name, "Koach," has a double meaning: the numerical value of the Hebrew word is twenty-eight, corresponding to the twenty-eight fallen soldiers and "Koach" also means strength.

The fort is not as large as a Tegart fort and has a round turret. It was commissioned by the British and served as a key observation point on the Naphtali Heights, overlooking the Hula Valley.
 By mid-April 1948, most of the Upper Galilee had been evacuated by the British. Arab forces occupied a number of key points including the police for at Nabi Yusha. The fort commanded the main road to the Upper Galilee and the Palmach understood that this point was of strategic importance for the safety and future of the Kibbutzim below.
In the evening hours of April 15th, the police station was attacked by inhabitants of the nearby Jewish settlements but they were forced to withdraw when their opponents opened strong fire on them resulting in the deaths of four Jews. Five days later another attempt was made to occupy the fort and a small force succeeded in breaking the barriers and reaching the wall, although two members were hit which meant that the explosives could not be evacuated until their evacuation. During the evacuation the enemy once again opened fire on them and many unit soldiers were killed they fought until the last man and in total twenty-two Jews were killed.
On May 16-17 a company occupied the fort after driving away the enemy. On the next day, two of their soldiers were killed.
In the battles for the fort, twenty-eight soldiers were killed and Metzudat HaKoach (Fort of the Twenty-Eight) is named after them until this day.
The region is very shady and highly pleasant with beautiful observation points overlooking the Kadesh Stream and the Hula Valley. A visit to the site is the perfect combination of a battle heritage site and a gorgeous trip in to a mountain forest.
