The city of Be'er Scheva was founded under Turkish rule for better control of the rebel Bedouins and a strategic outpost on the way to the Suez Canal. In 1915, Be'er Scheva was connected to the railway network to supply the stationed troops. Nevertheless, the British army was able to capture the city in October 1917. In Be'er Scheva there is a military cemetery of the Australian to New Zealand Army Corps and the Be'er Scheva war memorial for the fallen Ottoman soldiers.
