The Siege of Malta, also known as the Siege of Valletta or the French Blockade (Maltese: L-Imblokk tal-Franċiżi), was a two-year siege and blockade of the French garrison in Valletta, the largest city and main port on the Mediterranean island of Malta, between 1798 and 1800. Valletta had been captured by a French expeditionary force during the Mediterranean campaign of 1798, and garrisoned with 3,000 men under the command of Claude-Henri Belgrand de Vaubois. When the French Mediterranean Fleet was destroyed at the Battle of the Nile on 1 August 1798, the British Royal Navy was able to initiate a blockade of Malta, assisted by an uprising among the native Maltese population against French rule. Forced to retreat to Valletta, the French garrison faced severe food shortages, exacerbated by the effectiveness of the British blockade: although small quantities of supplies arrived in early 1799, there was no further traffic until early 1800, by which time starvation and disease was having a disastrous effect on health, morale, and combat capability of the French troops. [source]

tomorrow:

Victory Day, 8 September, is a national holiday in Malta. It is locally known as il-Vitorja (the Victory) and il-Bambina (Baby Mary). It marks the following events:

The victory by the Knights of St. John ending the Great Siege by the Turks of 1565.
The rebellion against the French troops occupying Malta in September 1800
Italy ended hostilities against the Allies marking an end to siege of Malta in 1943, and turned against its former German ally.
The day is also connected to the Nativity of Mary, and in fact feasts are celebrated in Xagħra, Naxxar, Senglea, and Mellieħa on the day.

15 years ago today; the day that changed the lives of all humans. The start of WW3.
My prayers to the victims of this tragedy and to those who died afterwards due to its consequence around the world.
