October 15, 634: The Muslims capture Central Syria from the East Romans


On October 15, 634 A.D., Arab Muslim hordes, under Khalid ibn Al-Walid and traitorous Arab Christian allies, defeated the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) army at the Battle of Abu-al Quds.

The Arabs captured tons of looted booty and hundreds of East Roman prisoners.
