The Israelite Tower

According to II Kings 15:29, "In the time of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria came and took Ijon, Abel Beth Maakah, Janoah, Kedesh and Hazor. He took Gilead and Galilee, including all the land of Naphtali, and deported the people to Assyria." According to archaeologists, the tower was built to withstand the imminent Assyrian threat.
