Due to its favorable geographic position, and abundance of water, the city prospered and became an important economic and strategic center. In the 5th century B.C., the City was destroyed on the hands of Egyptian pharaohs. To be followed by consequent invasions of several peoples: Assyrian - Hebrew Tripes, Babylonians, Persians and Greeks, in 63 B.C.the City fell in the hands of the Romans. They destroyed major parts of the Old City and built a new one to its West calling it Neapolis (the new city). In 635 A.D. Musilm Arabs Librated the town changing it's name to Nablus. Following Amer Ben el'A'ss' conquest of the City, it took an islamic Arab character. The City was occupied by the Crusades from 1099 - 1187 AD. It was recapured by Salah El-Deen, in 1187 A.D.
