The battle of al-Buqaia

Nur al-Din was surprised at Al-Buqai'a al-Hosn, almost being captured and suffering a humiliating defeat. Asbridge marks this as the point at which he became truly committed to jihad. He exacted revenge shortly thereafter at Harim, crushing the armies of Antioch and Tripoli.
