Sixth time: Monument to the Lamed Heh shattered

Two weeks after the 72nd anniversary of the fall of the Lamed Heh convoy, the monument was vandalized for the sixth time.

The "Convoy of 35" was a convoy of Haganah fighters sent during the 1947–48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on a mission to reach by foot and resupply the blockaded kibbutzim of Gush Etzion in January 1948, after earlier motorized convoys had been attacked.
