“Jabal-al-nar” literally means “the mountain of fire” because its inhabitants played leading roles in fighting invaders through history. They fought against the invading Egyptian forces in 1834; they rebelled against the British rule in 1936-39 and the Old City quarter of Qaryun was demolished by the British during the Arab revolt in Palestine; King Hussein of Jordan had to send tanks to quash the Nabulsi rebellion; and the Palestinians of Jabal-Nablus led the intifada against the Israeli occupation in 1987-88.
