The conference served as a platform for virulent attacks against Great Britain and Zionism. Four committees were established to handle the political, financial, economic, and propaganda issues destined to encourage the Arab states to support the Palestinian cause. Five decisions were arrived at: 1. Palestine was regarded as an inseparable part of the Arab world. 2.

The police lost control of the situation, with riots breaking out throughout Jaffa. The train of violence now raced full steam and could not be stopped. Within the two first days, sixty-one Jews and six Arabs were killed (seventy-six Jews and seventy-one Arabs were wounded). 6 As these spontaneous events were unfolding, first measures to organize and control the developments were taken by the Palestinian leadership.

At the end of July the Palestinians attempted to place the disparate guerrilla groups under a unified command. On August 7, the heads of the groups agreed to establish three command zones: the hills of Nablus, the Tul Karem zone, and the area around Haifa and Acre.
