The Niš rebellion broke out in Niš in 1821, suppressed by the Ottomans the same year. It was led by a Serb revolutionary organization, the Niš Secret Organization (Hишка тајна организација), created in 1820 by Orthodox priest Melentije.[1] It was influenced by the Greek revolutionary organization, Filiki Eteria (Society of Friends).[1] The muhafiz of the Pashaluk of Niš in 1821 was Husein-paša, who was also the commander of the Niš garrison with 8,000 soldiers.[1]
