Second Battle of Harenc: Ridwan of Aleppo, titular ruler of Antioch, raises an army to relieve the besieged city of Antioch. The Christian Crusaders learn of his plans and launch a preemptive assault with their remaining 700 heavy cavalry.

The Turks under Ridwan are forced into retreat back to Aleppo, a city in northern Syria, and the plan to relieve Antioch is abandoned.
