A Jordanian civil committee is preparing to communicate with Damascus to “return the bodies of the Karak martyrs”

A committee representing the people of the Jordanian city of Karak announced that it is preparing to communicate with the Syrian authorities, with the aim of recovering the bodies of the leaders of the Karak Revolution who were executed by the Ottoman authorities in Damascus.
The Jordanian “Khabarni” website said that the people of the Jordanian region of Karak agreed to form a national committee to communicate with the Syrian government, to retrieve the bodies of the leaders of the Karak revolution (Heya), which took place against the Ottomans at the beginning of the last century.
According to the website, the committee will demand the return of the remains of Sheikh “Qadr al-Majali” and his companions from the symbols of “Hayat al-Karak” that revolted against the Ottomans in 1910 of the last century, before the Ottomans executed them by hanging in Damascus nearly 111 years ago.
The committee stated that shrines for the bodies of these symbols will be erected in their hometown of “Karak” with the aim of “immortalizing their heroism to remain present in the minds of generations throughout the ages.”
It is noteworthy that the “Karak Revolt,” as it is historically called, erupted in 1910, in Karak against the Ottoman rule. It was known as the “Divine” and came in conjunction with the Jabal al-Arab revolt in As-Suwayda against the Ottoman policies regarding taxes and forced conscription for the Balkan war.
According to historical information, the Ottoman governor at that time confronted the protesters with iron, fire and arrests, so the sheikhs of Karak gathered from all regions and launched a massive revolution, and the people were able to kill the Ottoman units on the outskirts of the city, before the revolution spread everywhere and besieged the Turkish garrison in the castle, destroying stations Railroads and telegraph poles on the desert road, killing hundreds of the Ottoman military, seizing the Saraya, the Town Hall, the Telegraph House, and the Tobacco Department.
But the response of the Ottomans was violent and broad, as their forces launched a military campaign on Karak, which ended with the bombing of the city with cannons and burning it, and a series of arrests affected the movement’s symbols, including “Qadr Al-Majali, Saher Al-Maaytah, Darwish Al-Jaafa’ra, Ali Al-Lwansa, Mansour and Khalil Znibat” who were imprisoned in a prison Damascus Citadel and later executed.
