Palmach "Harel" Brigade 20th Anniversary assembly commemoration numbered medal, 1968; struck in tombak by the Shekel medal company; weight: 78.15g; size: 59mm. Obverse bears a miniature size of the Harel's emblem with the word "Harel" above, a list of the Brigade's battles in the War of Independence (1947-49) and after, with legend along edge "Assembly of the Palmach Harel Brigade Jerusalem 3 [in the month of] Kheshvan 5728 24.10.68; on reverse a stylization of the breakthrough to Jerusalem with legend "Harel 1948 Armored Brigade 1967". Rim numbered "1713".

The 10th Harel Brigade was established in April 1948, commanded by Yitzhak Rabin, and fought in the Jerusalem area; after the war (when the Palmach was already absorbed into the new IDF) it was transformed into a reserve brigade in the armoured corps; it fought in the 1956 Sinai Campaign and again in 1967 in the Jerusalem sector - hence the parallels highlighted on this medal. In EF with some lacquer on the surface.
