A city-state in Syria-Palestine that became a vassal of Egypt after the campaigns of Thutmose I. In 1458 BC, it became the center of a revolt against Egypt headed by the prince of Kadesh. The city was attacked and beseiged by Thutmose IIIin a surprise assault and forced to surrender. The captured princes were obliged to renew their allegiance to Egypt. The city and its ruler, Biridiya, appear in the Amarna letters. The city remained under Egyptian control until the middle of Dynasty 20, when the last attested Egyptain ruler there is Ramesses VI.
