Haifa Oil Refinery massacre

Haifa Oil Refinery massacre refers to an incident that took place on December 30, 1947.

After operatives of the Zionist paramilitary, the Irgun, threw a number of grenades at a crowd of 100 Arab day labourers who had gathered outside the main gate of the British-owned Haifa Oil refinery looking for work, 6 people were killed and 42 wounded.

Minutes following this attack, Arab refinery workers and others began attacking the Jewish refinery workers, resulting in 42 deaths and 49 injuries, before British army and police units arrived to put an end to the violence.
