Sword with pearls

The terrible Bosniak of Palestine, his 18 Slavic blondes, Albanian soldiers and the defeat of Napoleon

In the north of Israel, near the border with Lebanon, is the port city of Akon. In 1799, Akoni was an Ottoman fortress, which Napoleon tried to conquer. Napoleon's goal was to bring Palestine and Syria under his control after conquering Egypt. To achieve this he had to take Akon.

At that time, the ruler of Ottoman Palestine was Xhezar Ahmet Pasha, born in 1722 in Bosnia. Xezar was his war name and it meant: butcher. In front of Napoleon, who was marching with his troops towards Akon, stood Xhezar Ahmet Pasha.
