Ammunition Hill was a fortified weapons depository that the British built in Jerusalem just west of their Police Training School (at the time it was built, in 1935, it was the tallest building in the city), during the Mandatory Period. The Jordanians seized both in 1948, so in the 1949 Armistice Agreements, both the school and the ammunition dump were left on the Jordanian side of divided Jerusalem. They heavily fortified the hill with large and small bunkers, as well as a series of trenches looking towards Israeli positions to the north and west.
During the Six Days War in 1967, Ammunition Hill (picture taken before the battle) was the scene of terrible fighting between attacking Israeli paratroopers and Jordanian defenders. Taking it and the nearby Police Academy allowed Israeli forces to link up with their enclave on Mount Scopus (parts of Mount Scopus remained an Israeli enclave in Jordanian-held territory) to the north and east of the city. They then were able to take the Mount of Olives, completing their encirclement of the Old City, which they entered on the final day of the war (June 10, 1967). The site (see here and here) had been the scene of previous clashes during the 1948 Israel Independence War, when Israeli forces tried to take it but was defended and held by Jordanian forces.
