The Ili Rebellion (simplified Chinese: 伊宁事变; traditional Chinese: 伊寧事變; pinyin: Yīníng shìbiàn) (Üch Wiläyt inqilawi[3]) was a Soviet-backed revolt against the Kuomintang government of the Republic of China in 1944. Following the rebellion, the rebels established the Provisional Government of the Second East Turkestan Republic in 1944. The Ili Rebellion was the start of the Three Districts Revolution (simplified Chinese: 三区革命; traditional Chinese: 三區革命; pinyin: Sān qū gémìng) which lasted from 1944 to 1949.

under their influence.[6] In 1944 the Soviets took advantage of discontent among the Turkic peoples of the Ili region in northern Xinjiang
Xinjiang
to support a rebellion against Kuomintang
Kuomintang
rule in the province in order to reassert Soviet influence in the region. Fighting[edit] Kulja revolt[edit] Many of the Turkic peoples of the Ili region of Xinjiang
Xinjiang
had close cultural, political and economic ties with Russia
Russia
and then the Soviet Union. Many of them were educated in the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
and a community of Russian settlers lived in the region. As a result, many of the Turkic rebels fled to the Soviet Union
Soviet Union
and obtained Soviet assistance in creating the Sinkiang Turkic People's Liberation Committee (STPNLC) in 1943 to revolt against Chinese Kuomintang
Kuomintang
rule in Ili.[7] The pro-Soviet Uyghur who later became leader of the revolt, Ehmetjan Qasim, was Soviet-educated and described as "Stalin's man" and as a "Communist-minded progressive".[8] Liu Bin-Di was a Hui Muslim
Hui Muslim
Kuomintang
Kuomintang
(KMT) officer sent by officials in Ürümqi
Ürümqi
to subdue the Hi area and crush the Turkic Muslims, who were prepared to overthrow Chinese rule. His mission failed because his troops arrived too late.[9] Several Turkic cavalry units armed by the Soviets crossed into China in the direction of Kuldja. In November 1944 Liu was killed by Turkic Uyghur and Kazakh rebels backed by the Soviet Union. This started the Ili Rebellion, with the Uyghur Ili rebel army fighting against Republic of China forces. The rebels assaulted Kulja on 7 November 1944 and rapidly took over parts of the city, massacring KMT troops. However, the rebels encountered fierce resistance from KMT forces holed up in the power and central police stations and did not take them until the 13th. The creation of the "East Turkestan Republic" (ETR) was declared on the 15th.[10] The Soviet Army assisted the Ili Uyghur army in capturing several towns and airbases. Non-communist Russians like White Russians and Russian settlers who had lived in Xinjiang
Xinjiang
since the 19th century also helped the Soviet Red Army
Red Army
and the Ili Army rebels. They suffered heavy losses.[11] Many leaders of the East Turkestan Republic were Soviet agents or affiliated with the Soviet Union, like Abdulkerim Abbas, Ishaq Beg, Saifuddin Azizi
Saifuddin Azizi
and the White Russians F. Leskin, A. Polinov and Glimkin.[12] When the rebels ran into trouble taking the vital Airambek airfield from the Chinese, Soviet military forces directly intervened to help mortar Airambek and reduce the Chinese stronghold.[13] Massacres[edit] The rebels engaged in massacres of Han Chinese
Han Chinese
civilians, especially targeting people affiliated with the KMT and Sheng Shicai.[14] In the "Kulja Declaration" issued on 5 January 1945, the East Turkestan Republic proclaimed that it would "sweep away the Han Chinese", threatening to extract a "blood debt" from the Han. The declaration also declared that the Republic would seek to especially establish cordial ties with the Soviets.[15] The ETR later de-emphasized the anti-Han tone in its official proclamations after they were done massacring most of the Han civilians in their area.[16] The massacres against the Han occurred mostly during 1944-45, with the KMT responding in kind by torturing, killing and mutilating ETR prisoners.[13] In territory controlled by the ETR, like Kulja, various repressive measures were carried out, such as establishing a Soviet-style secret police organization, barring Han from owning weapons and making Russian and Turkic languages official and not Chinese.[17] While the non-Muslim Tungusic peoples like the Xibe played a large role in helping the rebels by supplying them with crops, the local Muslim Tungan (Hui) in Ili gave either an insignificant and negligible contribution to the rebels or did not assist them at all.[16] Formation of Ili National Army[edit] The Ili National Army (INA), which was established on 8 April 1945 as the military arm of the ETR, was led by the Kirghiz Ishaq Beg and the White Russians Polinov and Leskin; all three were pro-Soviet and had a history of military service with Soviet-associated forces.[18] The Soviets supplied the INA with ammunition and Russian-style uniforms, and Soviet troops directly helped INA troops fight against the Chinese forces.[19] The INA uniforms and flags all had insignia with the Russian acronym for "East Turkestan Republic", ВТР in Cyrillic (Восточная Туркестанская Республика). The Soviets admitted their support of the rebels decades later when they transmitted a radio broadcast in Uyghur from Radio Tashkent into Xinjiang
Xinjiang
on 14 May 1967, boasting of the fact that the Soviets had trained and armed the East Turkestan Republic forces against China.[20] Thousands of Soviet troops assisted Turkic rebels in fighting the Chinese army.[21] In October 1945 suspected Soviet planes attacked Chinese positions.[22] As the Soviet Red Army
Red Army
and Turkic Uyghur Ili Army advanced with Soviet air support against poorly prepared Chinese forces, they almost succeeded in reaching Ürümqi; however, the Chinese military threw up rings of defenses around the area, sending Chinese Muslim cavalry to halt the advance of the Turkic Muslim rebels. Thousands of Chinese Muslim troops under Gen. Ma Bufang
Ma Bufang
and his nephew Gen. Ma Chengxiang poured into Xinjiang
Xinjiang
from Qinghai
Qinghai
to combat the Soviet and Turkic Uyghur forces. Much of the Ili army and equipment originated from the Soviet Union. The Ili rebel army pushed Chinese forces across the plains and reached Kashgar, Kaghlik and Yarkand. However, the Uyghurs
Uyghurs
in the oases gave no support to the Soviet-backed rebels and, as a result, the Chinese army was able to expel them. The Ili rebels then butchered livestock belonging to Kirghiz and Tajiks of Xinjiang.[23] The Soviet-backed insurgents destroyed Tajik and Kirghiz crops and moved aggressively against the Tajiks and Kirghiz of China.[24] The Chinese beat back the Soviet-supported rebellion in Sarikol from August 1945-46, defeating the siege of the "tribesman" around Yarkand when they had rose up in rebellion in Nanchiang around Sarikol, and killing Red Army officers.[25] The Chinese Muslim Ma Clique
Ma Clique
warlord of Qinghai, Ma Bufang, was sent with his cavalry to Ürümqi
Ürümqi
by the Kuomintang
Kuomintang
in 1945 to protect it from the Uyghur rebels of Ili.[22][26][27][28][29] In 1945 the Tungan (Hui) 5th and 42nd Cavalry were sent from Qinghai
Qinghai
to Xinjiang, where they reinforced the KMT 2nd Army, made up of four divisions. Their combined forces totaled 100,000 Hui and Han troops serving under KMT command in 1945.[30] It was reported the Soviets was eager to "liquidate" Ma Bufang.[31] Gen. Ma Chengxiang, another Hui Ma Clique officer and nephew of Ma Bufang, commanded the 1st Cavalry Division in Xinjiang
Xinjiang
under the KMT, which was formerly the Gansu 5th Cavalry Army.[32][33][34] A cease-fire was declared in 1946, with the Second East Turkestan Republic in control of Ili and the Chinese in control of the rest of Xinjiang, including Ürümqi. 1947 unrest[edit] Unpopular Gov. Wu Zhongxin
Wu Zhongxin
was replaced after the cease-fire with Zhang Zhizhong, who implemented pro-minority policies to placate the Uyghur population. Bai Chongxi, the Defense Minister of China and a Muslim, was considered for appointment in 1947 as Governor of Xinjiang,[35] but the position was given instead to Masud Sabri, a pro- Kuomintang
Kuomintang
Uyghur who was anti-Soviet.[36] Sabri was close to conservatives in the CC Clique of the Kuomintang
Kuomintang
and undid all of Zhang Zhizhong's pro-minority reforms, which set off revolts and riots among the Uyghurs
Uyghurs
in oases like Turfan. The Turkic (Uyghurs) were being subjected to Soviet propaganda.[25] In Ürümqi
Ürümqi
(Uyghur) Muslim women who married Han Chinese
Han Chinese
men were assaulted by hordes of (Uyghur) Muslims on 11 July 1947, and the women were seized and kidnapped by the hordes. Old (Uyghur) Muslim men forcibly married the women. In response to the chaos a curfew was placed at 11:00 p.m.[37] The marriages between Muslim (Uyghur) women and Han Chinese
Han Chinese
men infuriated Uyghur leader Isa Yusuf Alptekin.[38] Ma Chengxiang, a Kuomintang
Kuomintang
Chinese Muslim general and the nephew of Ma Bufang, allegedly used his Chinese Muslim cavalry to butcher Uyghurs
Uyghurs
during an uprising in 1948 in Turfan.[39] Ma Chengxiang was the commander of the 5th Cavalry Unit, which was stationed in Xinjiang. Over 60,000 soldiers were in the Ili army according to Gen. Sung.[40] Achmad (Ehmetjan Qasim) was strongly against Masud Sabri becoming governor.[41] Ehmetjan Qasim
Ehmetjan Qasim
(Achmad-Jan), the Uyghur Ili leader, demanded that Sabri be sacked as governor as one of the conditions for his agreeing to visit Nanjing.[42] All races in the Ili region were forcibly conscripted into the Uyghur Ili army except the Han. The Uyghurs
Uyghurs
and Soviets massacred Han living in Ili and drove them from the region. Salar Muslim Gen. Han Youwen, who served under Ma Bufang, commanded the Pau-an-dui (保安隊; pacification soldiers), composed of three 340-man battalions. They were composed of men of many groups, including Kazakhs, Mongols
Mongols
and White Russians serving the Chinese regime. He served with Osman Batur and his Kazakh forces in fighting the ETR Ili Uyghur and Soviet forces.[43] The ETR forces in the Ashan zone were attacked, defeated and killed by Osman's Kazakh forces during an offensive in September 1947, supported by the Chinese.[44] Osman's Kazakhs
Kazakhs
seized most of the towns in the Ashan zone from the ETR.[45] The acting Soviet consul at Chenghua, Dipshatoff, directed the Red Army
Red Army
in aiding ETR Ili forces against Osman's Kazakhs.[46] The KMT CC Clique employed countermeasures in Xinjiang
Xinjiang
to prevent the conservative, traditionalist religious Uyghurs
Uyghurs
in the oases in southern Xinjiang
Xinjiang
from defecting to the pro-Soviet, pro-Russian ETR Uyghurs
Uyghurs
in Ili in northern Xinjiang. The KMT allowed three anti-Soviet, Pan-Turkic nationalist Uyghurs--Masud Sabri, Muhammad Amin Bughra and Isa Yusuf Alptekin--to write and publish pan-Turkic nationalist propaganda in order to incite the Turkic peoples against the Soviets, and the Soviets were greatly angered by this.[47][48] Anti-Soviet sentiment was espoused by Isa while pro-Soviet sentiment was espoused by Burhan. The Soviets were angered by Isa.[49] Uyghur linguist Ibrahim Muti'i opposed the Second East Turkestan Republic and was against the Ili Rebellion because it was backed by the Soviets and Stalin.[50] Former ETR leader Saifuddin Azizi
Saifuddin Azizi
later apologized to Ibrahim and admitted that his opposition to the East Turkestan Republic was the correct thing to do. American telegrams reported that the Soviet secret police threatened to assassinate Muslim leaders from Ining and put pressure on them to flee to "inner China" via Tihwa (Ürümqi). White Russians grew fearful of Muslim mobs as they chanted, "We freed ourselves from the yellow men, now we must destroy the white."[51] "Pei-ta-shan Incident"[edit] Main article: Pei-ta-shan Incident The Mongolian People's Republic
Mongolian People's Republic
became involved in a border dispute with the Republic of China, as a result of which a Chinese Muslim Hui cavalry regiment was sent in response by the Chinese government to attack Mongol
Mongol
and Soviet positions. As commander of the 1st Cavalry Division, Maj. Gen. Han Youwen was sent by the Kuomintang
Kuomintang
military command to Beitashan with a company of troops to reinforce Ma Xizhen. They arrived approximately three months before the fighting broke out.[52] At Pei-ta-shan, Gen. Han was in command of all the Muslim cavalry defending against Soviet and Mongol
Mongol
forces.[53] Han said to A. Doak Barnet, an American reporter, that he "believed the border should be about 40 miles to the north of the mountains".[2] Chinese Muslim and Turkic Kazakh forces working for the Chinese Kuomintang
Kuomintang
fought Soviet Russian and Mongol
Mongol
troops. In June 1947 the Mongols
Mongols
and the Soviets launched an attack against the Kazakhs, driving them back to the Chinese side. However, fighting continued for another year, with 13 clashes taking place between 5 June 1947 and July 1948.[2] Elite Qinghai

and the Russians in 1947.[54] Salar Muslim Gen. Han Youwen's 1st Division received at Beitashan Osman's forces after he retreated in battle. Qitai County was where Han Youwen's 1st Division of the 5th Army was headquartered in 1946, the following year, at the Beitashan incident Ma Xizhen battled the Mongols.[55] During the war against the Ili separatists, Han Youwen performed a prayer on the snow-covered ground after parking his car on the road after a defeat inflicted upon the Ili National Army.[56] Political accession of Xinjiang

On 19 August 1949, Mao Zedong, the leader of the Chinese Communists, invited the leaders of the Three Districts to attend the Inaugural Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference to be held in Beijing.[57] Mao Zedong

Beijing
by train and agreed to join the People’s Republic of China, which was founded on 1 October. The deaths of the other former ETR leaders were not announced until December, after the Chinese Communists' People's Liberation Army

and had reorganized the military forces of the Three Districts into the PLA.[60] Several former ETR commanders joined the PLA. On 25 September Nationalist leaders in Dihua, Tao Zhiyue and Burhan Shahidi, announced the formal surrender of the Nationalist forces in Xinjiang
Xinjiang
to the Chinese Communists. On 12 October the Communist People's Liberation Army
People's Liberation Army
entered Xinjiang. Many other Kuomintang generals in Xinjiang

fled to Turkey. Masud Sabri was arrested by the Chinese Communists and died in prison in 1952. The only organized resistance the PLA encountered was from Osman Batur's Kazakh militia and from Yulbars Khan's White Russian and Hui troops, who served the Republic of China. Batur pledged his allegiance to the Kuomintang

and was killed in 1951. Yulbars Khan

Uyghur Autonomous Region of the PRC was established on 1 October 1955, replacing the Xinjiang Province (1884–1955). American telegrams[edit] Multiple telegrams were exchanged among the Chinese government, the Mongolians, the American government, the Uyghur Ili regime and the Soviet Union. These were preserved by American agents and sent to Washington, DC.[51] Related events and people[edit] Main articles: Xinjiang
