After World War II, multiple Jewish resistance organisations united and established the Jewish Resistance Movement. They began to coordinate armed attacks against the British military and organise the mass illegal immigration of European Jews into the Middle East as a result of British policies in Mandatory Palestine.

A pivotal moment during the Palestine Conflict was the terrorist attack on the King David Hotel on 22nd July 1946. The hotel was the British administrative headquarters of Palestine.
