Beisan is a border city located a few miles from the Sea of Galilee and four kilometers from the Syrian border. Its military situation was weak after Fawzi al-Qawuqji withdrew on April 25 from the HaYimik colony.

On May 12, Jewish forces from surrounding colonies gathered and attacked the small city defended by no more than two hundred individuals, mostly locals. They occupied the city three days before the scheduled entry of Arab armies into Palestine.
