King patronizes start of Great Arab Revolt centennial celebrations

Aqaba, Jan 23 (Petra) –– His Majesty King Abdullah II Saturday led a ceremony in Aqaba to raise the flag of the 1916 Great Arab Revol, heralding the start of the Kingdom's celebrations of the revolt's centennial.

The commemorations were launched in the southern city of Aqaba, the first command centre on Jordanian soil of the Great Arab Revolt, whose armies, aided by Jordanian tribes, entered the city in 1917 to help realize the revolt's goals of the Arabs' unity, freedom from the Ottoman rule and renaissance.
