The Great Palestinian Revolution, 1936 AD
After the martyrdom of Sheikh Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam, a unit of resistors was established. It was led by Farhan Al-Saadi who never stopped fighting the British. This unit battled with some Zionists in the way of Nablus – Tulkarm on April, 1936, and killed three of them. On the next day, the Zionists killed two Arabs near the settlement of Petah Tikva, which led to clashes between the Arabs and the Zionists in Jaffa and Tel Aviv, and caused the death of three Zionists. As a result, curfew was imposed and the emergency law was announced by the Mandate government. Thus, Palestine went through a six-month strike that led to the paralysis of the commercial, industrial, educational, agricultural activities as well as the transportation all around the cities and villages.
