Siege of Acre: Alarmed by the growing threat of the Crusaders camped outside of Acre, Saladin launches an attack on the Crusader camp which fails.

All month European ships loaded with Crusading soldiers have been arriving, and more will arrive through the rest of the month. The force surrounding Acre is growing to the point where it might actually pose a real threat to the Muslim hold on the region.

The Siege of Acre will become the primary battle of the Third Crusade.
