The concept of “few versus many” occurred during the War of Independence in the liberation of Safed, which is particularly affected during these days of Corona as a tourist city. Then there is a tourist return program and also a song
The tourist cities are the most severely affected by the Corona, in the face of stopping flights to Israel, as well as the closing of rooms and hotels and the ban on traveling. Among these cities is also the Old City of Safed – according to the data, the city of Safed visits 1.2 million tourists every year. That's why these days are advancing Ohana Markets – Mayor, along with Yochai Ezra – The City Council member, a plan to bring tourists back to Safed, is currently also physically using the smartphone below.
For the purposes of this image, it can be said that this is the tourist campaign against the Corona that is taking place during this period in Safed. Since we are at the very heart of Israel's Memorial Day Memorial, it is impossible not to recall the campaign for the liberation of the city of Safed during the War of Independence.
“Few vs. Many” in the Battle for the Liberation of Safed
The concept of “few versus many” actually took place in the campaign for the liberation of Safed, the battle for Safed was one of the most decisive and successful in the War of Independence, because Safed was a central city for the residents of the Eastern Galilee and the Hula Valley, and the results of the battle had immediate consequences for the entire Arab and Jewish community in the Galilee. At Safed there were about 2000 Jews and about 11,000 Arabs at the time, and in the city a joint council and usually coexistence existed, until the United Nations resolution on November 29, 1947, where it was determined that Safed would be in the Jewish state. The Jews constantly feared that a confrontation was expected and prepared for it in various ways.
On December 13, 47, the “Haganah” man, Menachem Mizrahi, was sent on a tour of the Arab market, his body was removed, and that was the signal for the war to open in the city. Relations between Jews and Arabs ceased, and Arab attacks began on the Jewish Quarter, which was topographically inferior and surrounded on three sides by Arab neighborhoods. The first major Arab attack on the quarter was on Friday, 1.1.48. The British preceded the evacuation of their forces from the city on April 16 for fear of unnecessary entanglement with the Arab rescue force. With the backing of the Arabs, the British demanded the evacuation of Jewish women and children and Jewish fighting forces. Uri Yaffe, the commander of the Defense Area, decided that in such a step all the protection of the city would collapse and issued an order “No man to evacuate the city”.
After the British evacuation, a severe attack on the borough was launched. On the morning of April 17, after 15 consecutive fighting hours, the Palmach Division with 35 fighters, under the command of Lieutenant Elad Peled (later Maj. Gen.), 21, arrived in the besieged district. Peled assumed command of the city, declared a military regime and general mobilization. On the night of May 1, the 3rd Battalion, under the command of Moshe Kalman, captured Ein Zeitun (today's olive eye) and its nearby towns and made its way to the besieged Jewish Quarter. On May 5, the Palmach forces failed in their first attempt to conquer the citadel in the city center, but later succeeded in conquering Arab Safed on May 9. On the night of May 10, 48, three Arab strategic positions in the city were simultaneously attacked, and after a hard fight, all were conquered. When Palmach forces entered the Arab quarter, they discovered that the Arab population had fled toward the wadi, which was left open by Yigal Alon's instruction.
