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. It was influenced by the Greek revolutionary organization, Filiki Eteria (Society of Friends). 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.
