1946 June 17, NIGHT OF THE BRIDGES (Eretz Israel)

In a coordinated effort by the Haganah, eleven bridges linking Eretz-Israel to other countries were destroyed. North of Acre, 14 of the fighters died. Kibbutz Gesher Haziv was established in their memory. The British reaction came 12 days later on what would become known as Black Sabbath, with mass arrests including members of the Jewish Agency executive.
