Fifth Crusade Armies Attack Mount Tabor Unsuccessfully

Armies of the Fifth Crusade attack Mount Tabor. They come close to succeeding, but are unable to defeat the Muslim fortifications. Soon after, the Muslim commander has the fortifications demolished in order to remove the site as a future target of the Crusaders.

Nevertheless, a military stronghold at Mount Tabor had its uses because it provided a well-defended site for raids against nearby Acre, which is exactly why the Crusaders were eager to capture it in the first place.
