Ammunition Hill 1967

I've done a bit of reading on the conficts of '67 and '73. If I remember correctly the Israelis were always concerned when they had to engage the Jordanians due to the professional training they had received from British advisors (ie: Arab Legion – '48 and on).

I think the two Jordanian armored brigades were the 40th and 60th, both equiped with US tanks.

Looking up at the Jordanian positions on Ammunition Hill

Ammunition Hill was the most fortified Jordanian position that the Israelis faced in 1967. The Israelis needed to take these positions in order to break through the Jordanian front line and reinforce Mount Scopus, and to help in encircling the Old City of Jerusalem.
