Blown-up Rail tunnel and Israel's northern-most point on coast
 
Rosh Ha-Niqra. Rail tunnel, built by 10th Railway Building Company, New Zealand Expeditionary Force, under British authority in the early 1940s. Blow-up in 1948 by the IDF to prevent arms and men being transported from Lebanon into Israel by British forces. Part of the Cairo-to-Europe line, via Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.
