History[edit]

The village was established in 1950 by immigrants from Yemen. It was named for the 28 soldiers (כ"ח is the Hebrew numerals for 28) from the Alexandroni Brigade who died in fighting at Qula during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.[citation needed]

It is located on the land of the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Tira.[2]
