During the five years preceding the War of Independence, the following kibbutzim were established in the Etzion region: Kfar Etzion, Massuot Yitzhak, Ein Tzurim, Revadim. The Gush Etzion settlements were cut off from Jerusalem on the 27th March 1948, but they continued to hold out and defend themselves until May 14th, when Kfar Etzion was vanquished in a bloody battle. The defenders of the Gush saved Jerusalem for Israel by their stubborn fight and resistance. Following the Six Day War, Gush Etzion was resettled. A special medal was issued to mark the 13th Anniversary of Resettlement.
