During this period many parts of Palestine fell under guerrilla control. The British had literally to reconquer these parts of the country from the Palestinians, much as they had conquered the whole country from the Ottomans in World War 1. The Old City of Jerusalem, which had fallen under guerrilla control, was recaptured by the British from the Palestinians in October 1938.
