Zion Gate is one of eight gates in the city walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The gate is also named Bab an-Nabi Dawud "The Prophet David Gate" after the near tomb of the great king. The name Zion Gate comes from the mount Zion on which the gate stands. The plenty of bullets traces on the gate can be seen. These signs refer to the battle for freedom of the Jewish quarter after May 13, 1948, as the British Army withdrew from Jerusalem, and major from the Suffolk Regiment transferred the key for the Zion Gate to Jewish commander Mordechai Weingarten.
