In this fight very similar armies met and Ibelin's crusaders were bested Milites Christi led - or should we say - misled by baron Raynald. Ibelin activated quickly at the start and started moving cross the river. But after some praying Milites Christi hit very hard on very core of Ibelin army and took out main force on crusading knights. Ibelin put up hard fight after crossing the river and killed lot of Raynalds troops, but used up most of his strength fighting with crossbow unit in a house by the river.
After hard fight Raynald sent some knights to take care on lonely Ibelin, who was taken prisoner and ransomed heavily. Raynald lived up his reputation and relations with house Ibelin and Raymond of Tripoli got worse.
