A mission to the holy moon of Jedha was undertaken by a group of rebels led by Princess Leia Organa during the Galactic Civil War. They attempted to make contact with the surviving members of Saw Gerrera's Partisans.
Following the destruction of Jedha's Holy City and the Death Star, the surviving Partisans and some of the Holy City inhabitants regrouped. They followed Saw Gerrera's second in command, Benthic and continued to fight the Galactic Empire's remaining forces on Jedha. During this time, the Rebel Alliance was searching for a new base.
The Empire had Commander Befa retrieve the remaining kyber crystals from Jedha. Befa's troops however were unable to retrieve no more than a box full due to the continued resistance and Jedha's climate change.
Several Partisans under Ubin Des fought several snowtroopers who shot down their T-47 airspeeder. They were rescued by Rebel Alliance Commander Luke Skywalker. Together, they made their escape and boarded the Millennium Falcon. Des met with Captain Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa after they made their way to NaJedha and spoke with Organa about re-establishing the ties between the Alliance and Partisans to stop the Empire. Des and Chulco Gi agreed to take them to the Partisans' base. At the base, Benthic believed that they should kill Organa and her allies, but agreed to listen to her. He then agreed to accept her supplies and spoke with her about re-joining the Alliance.
The Imperial forces then came under the command of Commander Kanchar and his civilian adviser, Queen Trios of Shu-Torun. After "relieving" Befa of his command, Kanchar and Trios made plans to retrieve the remaining kyber from Jedha. Together, they discovered that Gerrera and his partisans had horde of kyber stored at the Catacombs of Cadera that Trios's miners had discovered. Kanchar then issued an edict stating that Jedha was now a prohibited moon. Trios prepared the drill citadel and allowed Kanchar to deploy it to Jedha.
Attack in Ai-jedEdit
Skywalker went with Gi and Des to Ai-jed. They saw that the stormtroopers were incinerating people. Skywalker fought the stormtroopers killing them all. Skywalker, Gi and Des regrouped with Benthic and Solo. Together, they saw the drill citadel land and planned to destroy it.
Attacking the Drill citadelEdit
Skywalker attacked one of the miners as he and Benthic boarded the drill citadel. Benthic forced one of the technicians to lower the shields so that the Partisans and the Falcon could attack the citadel. As Des distracted the gunners, Solo and Organa were then able to destroy the citadel mine. Despite the setback, Trios assured Kanchar that the Leviathan would finish the job.
Luke went with Gi to learn more about the Jedi at the chasm. As they approached, they then came under attack by a sand slug. Skywalker was able to kill it and ran into two members of the Central Isopter. Skywalker then listened to the Central Isopters answers.
Attacking the LeviathanEdit
The Partisans then planned to attack the Leviathan. Solo, Organa and Benthic studied the Leviathan, as one of Partisans teams attacked. Des was able to plant an explosive on it, but it had no effect. Organa and Solo then flew one of the airspeeders to save Des's team.
