Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1948 Palestinian exodus from Lydda and Ramle refers to the flight or expulsion of 50,000-70,000 Palestinian Arabs when Israeli troops captured the towns in July that year. The military action occurred within the context of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. The towns, which had been Arab areas in Palestine, became predominantly Jewish areas in the new State of Israel, known as Lod and Ramla. Ramle surrendered immediately, but the conquest of Lydda took longer and led to an unknown number of deaths; Israeli historian Benny Morris suggests up to 450 Arabs and 9-10 Israeli soldiers died.show more
