1945 March 2, HAGANAH POLICY TOWARDS THE IRGUN (Eretz Israel)
Ha'aretz newspaper reported that Yaakov Tavin, head of the Irgun's intelligence service, had been arrested and held for six months in Kibbutz Ein Harod. During that time he was interrogated and even tortured. This and other incidents led to the condemnation of the Haganah policies by the Chief Rabbinate and civil organizations. The protests, together with the disillusion of the Zionist leadership with British promises, led to the eventual collapse of
"the Season". According to both sides, the Season did not succeed in dismantling of the Irgun.
