Battle of Mecca took place in Mecca, in what is now known as Saudi Arabia, following the fall of Ta'if to King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud in his campaign to conquer the Kingdom of Hejaz. King Hussien bin Ali fled from Mecca to Jeddah, leaving behind a cache of weapons in the Qishla of Mecca which were recovered by Saudi forces. The battle in Mecca resulted in Hashemite defeat to Saudis and the allied Ikhwan.
Hussien fled again, first to Aqaba and later to Cyprus, declaring his son Ali bin Hussien as the King of Hejaz.
