The "W" Outposts in the Jordan Valley
During the defence of the Jordan Valley, various sectors were formed and each has a specific identifying letters.
The "W" Outposts included the following names:
- Wood; and,
These outposts run consecutively from west to east. All except Wood sit on the heights on the west side of Wadi el Abeid while Wood stradles Wadi Sebata a hundred metres to the west of Wadi el Abeid. Both wadis drain into Wadi el Auja which was the only permenant water course draining into the Jordan River.
The area consisted of a loose front line to the Ottoman forces. Consequently, the region experienced constant conflict characterised by small scale raids from both sides.
