Following the paving of the Sdom Road, allowing phosphates to be brought up easily from the Dea Sea mining site to the Negev Plateau, plans were made for the paving of a road south. One of the crew members is Suleiman, an expert in controlled explosions. Here he oversees the breaking of a barrier on the way to Wadi Fiqra (Nahal Tzin). News of the succesful explosion are transmitted by telegraph to the authorities in the distance. A film produced by the Hasbarah Center.
