Napoleon’s Conquest
In 1799 Napoleon Bonaparte embarked on a military campaign to conquer the Middle East. After taking Egypt, he turned to Palestine, and took Jaffa after a brief siege from the north and south. This is the place where Napoleon’s forces breached the southern wall. His soldiers pillaged the city, killing thousands of people and executing some 3,000 Ottoman soldiers on the city’s beach. Many of Napoleon’s soldiers died in the plague that broke out after the battles.
