Saladin Crosses the Jordan River, Heads for Jerusalem Hot

Saladin crosses the Jordan River with a large army intent on defeating the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. He is observed by Hospitallers in the fortress of Belvoir, but their numbers are too small to do anything but watch.

Saladin's overall plan is to draw the Crusaders out to do battle with him in the open field. He has concluded that his chances of victory are slim when attacking the Crusaders in their fortified positions.

The plan doesn't work very well at first — the Crusaders in Belvoir don't take the bait, then Saladin proceeds to attack Tiberias.
