Hundreds of bullets, slugs, and casings representing a wide range of firearms have come up through the sifting process. These modern projectiles range from the lead musket-balls of the Ottoman Period (top left) to bullets used by the IDF. to this very day. 9mm rounds were used in Uzzi sub-machine guns, which were fired within he Temple Mount during the Six Day War of 1967.
Two .50 caliber projectiles may be traceable to a particular battle, where on the morning of June 6th, 1967, a group of IDF tanks after taking a wrong turn came under fire from a Jordanian outpost located atop the Golden Gate, and returned fire with their Browning M2 machine gun mounted on the tank’s turret.
