This site is called after the Khets ha-Shakhor (Black Arrow) Operation which the paratroop forces carried out in 1955 in Gaza, and can be viewed from the spot. There are 11 stone columns, symbolizing the battles engaged in by the paratrooper brigade, and the unit that preceded it, the 101st. Nowadays, paratroopers are sworn in at the site.
