The Independence Party (Hizb al-Istiqlal) was an Arab nationalist party established on 13 August, 1932, in Palestine during the British mandate. Its origins lay in the Istiqlal movement associated with the short-lived Sharifian government in Damascus.

The rise of the party marked the turn by some Palestinians to mass resistance to the Zionist project and its British patron. During the 1936-1939 Great Arab Revolt the party called for an Indian Congress Party-style boycott of the British. The leader of the party, Awni Abd al-Hadi, was General Secretary of the Arab Higher Committee. The other founders of the party were Fahmi al-Abboushi, Muhammad Izzat Darwazah, Mu'in al-Madi, Akram Zu'aytir, ‘Ajaj Nuwayhid, Rashid al-Haj Ibrahim, Subhi al-Khadra, and Salim Salamah.

Members included Hamdi Husseini ...
