Defender

 Tower A

This is the posterior view of Tower A, also known as Sheikh Zayed Murabba, one of the 2 Hili Towers erected at the vicinity of Al Hili District. According to Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage (ADACH), this square tower was built under the direction of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in mid 1940's to defend the villagers and the Hili Oasis against the conflict known as "Hili Attack". They have been rebuilt by then Dept. of Antiquities and Tourism, now part of ADACH. Click here for more info.
