The Hebrew word for fortress is mivtsar (מבצר) and it comes from the Hebrew root bitser (ב.צ.ר.) which means "to fortify". I'm not sure why you are asking for its meaning: mivtsar means "fortress" in Hebrew, but you already know that.

Another Hebrew word for fortress is metzudah (מצודה). The origin of both these Hebrew words is the Hebrew Bible (2 Samuel 5:7, and Numbers 32:36, respectively).

Perhaps you are thinking of the particular fortress near the Dead Sea called Masada. In addition to being a physical fortress, the idea of Masada connotes the heroism and martyrdom of those Jews who resisted the Roman Occupation there.
