First day if touring in Israel. Our guide Elan picked us up and we want to the Ayelet bullet factory. This was a kibbutz that was to teach other pioneers how to live and run a kibbutz during the British mandate (prior to 1948). The Haganah (prior to the IDF) came up with an idea to have a top secret bullet factory under the laundry and bakery. We toured the 300 sq yard space where 45 young volunteers risked their lives every day making the bullets used for the war of Independence. Check it out.
