  Battle of the Trench - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Battle of Khandaq (AKA Battle of the Trench (Arabic غزوةالخندق), Battle of the Ditch, Battle of Ahzab (Arabic غزوةالاحزاب) was an attack by the city of Mecca on the city Medina in 627.
The Battle of the Trench began when the Jewish tribe Banu Nadir attacked the Muslims in Medina who had expelled the tribe for their alleged treachery towards them.
The name "Battle of the Trench" comes from the belief that the Muslims dug a trench north of Medina to protect their city (Medina was naturally fortified on all other fronts).
