|View from the trenches looking west toward |
the Kastel stronghold and Tel Aviv beyond, 1917. The
caption on a similar photo reads "Kastel and Jaffa Road
from Deir Yesin Redoubt."
|American Colony collection caption (1931): "Deir Yasin Turkish war trenches. West of Jerusalem, |
commanding the Jaffa road." See jagged defense lines on the mountain tops
|Another view of the trenches of Deir Yassin. |
Labeled "1917?" but probably also taken in 1931
