This announcement crackled over Israel’s military radios on June 6, 1967
This was one of the most important announcements of the Six Day War in 1967. “The Temple Mount is in our hands” – these six words caused soldiers to burst into tears and changed the history of Jerusalem forever.
Jews around the world had been waiting to pray at the Western Wall, the remains of the temple, since the occupation of Jordanian forces of the Old City of Jerusalem in 1948. The radio announcement of Motta Gur fulfilled the dream of the Jewish nation.
