General view of Haifa 1927

66 years ago today, a terror campaign was initiated against the Palestinian city of Haifa in order to seize and occupy it.
From April 21 through April 22, Zionist terrorist forces, organised by the Haganah, carried out operation Bi’ur Hametz (Hebrew for Passover Cleaning) against Haifa.
Orders to “to kill every adult male Arab encountered” were conducted and mortar barrages were launched against civilians gathering in the city’s marketplace. Psychological warfare was also used through broadcasting terror messages on the radio and loudspeakers. Eventually, and as a result of this campaign, the overwhelming majority of the residents “burst into the port,” and fled the city.
By April 23, out of the 61,000 Palestinians who used to call Haifa home, only 3,566 were allowed to stay, with at least 35,000 being forced out of their houses and made refugees.
