A convoy of IDF vehicle brings food to Saint Catherines Monastery in Sinai. Inside the monastery icons decorate the walls. Monks leaf through ancient manuscripts kept in a library. In one of the rooms, many skulls and bones of deceased monks are displayed, including a complete skeleton clad in a cloak. The food brought by the IDF is packed in wicker baskets, and the monks haul it into the building using a rope and a wooden mechanism.
