Returning to the Well-1.
Local Bedouins say that our patriarch Abraham liked to drink its water, and although the legend is hard to confirm, the well did play an important role on the stage of history. One of the main events took place in 1917, when the ANZAC Mounted Division defeated the Turks and conquered Beersheba at the conclusion of a bloody battle that lasted five days. The well was recently restored by KKL-JNF and the Bnei Shimon Regional Council, and the site was opened last week and celebrated at a dedication ceremony attended by KKL-JNF representatives and local residents.
