Great Syrian Revolt
The Great Syrian Revolt or Great Druze Revolt (1925–1927) was a general uprising across Syria and Lebanon aimed at getting rid of the French, who had been in control of the region since the end of World War I. The uprising was not centrally-coordinated; rather, it was attempted by multiple factions – among them SunniDruze, and Christian – with the common goal of ending French rule. The revolt was ultimately put down by French forces.
