Nur ad-Din is struck by a severe illness, halting his steady campaign against the Crusaders. For a time those close to him believe that he will die, but by January 1158 he will recover fully and once against launch his successful attacks against Crusader positions throughout the Holy Land.

However, this severe illness does cause changes in him, and from now on he will proceed more cautiously, even when he clearly has the upper hand against the Christian Crusaders.
