Stone wall from First Temple period destroyed by rains in Israel

The heavy rains that have battered Israel over the past few days have not only flooded modern city streets, but have also destroyed an ancient stone wall dating back to the First Temple period.

The extensive stone wall, located near the entrance gate to the ancient city of Tel Dan, collapsed over five tombstones located at its base, according to the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. The wall was made up of a combination of the original ancient stones and reconstructed pieces, the INPA said.
