Ramat Rachel, 10 km south of Jerusalem, Palestine]: [H2H][HIS][CSL]: Straddled along the Jerusalem - Bethlehem road, the hilltop kibbutz of Ramat Rachel was a strategic target for the Arab armies during the War of Independence. The kibbutz had exchanged hands a number of times during the previous days fighting and during the morning of May 24th, the kibbutz was in Israeli hands defended by 65 Irgun and 20 Haganah members. The final assault started at 9 a.m., with an Egyptian armoured column advancing from the west, supported by armoured cars and a tank, and a Jordanian company, with Moslem Brotherhood irregulars, attacking from the east. This was the only coordinated action involving Egyptian and Jordanian troops. The small defending force fought well, defending the various assaults until the arrival of a Haganah company to reinforce the position. [ALL: NOVV][NONE][1.00]

Tough nut to crack, high Israeli morale made it tough for the Arabs.

Tough for the Arabs. Israelis have high morale and are dug in. A draw is possible, but I don't see the arabs being able to win this.
Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us. --Walt Kelly
