Pelusium

640, the Muslim army reached Pelusium. It was a fortified town manned by a Byzantine garrison, which contained many ancient Egyptian monuments, as well as many Christian churches and monasteries. The city was considered Egypt's eastern gate, and a branch of the Nile, known as the Pelusiac Branch, used to empty into the Mediterranean near the city. The Muslims besieged the town. The siege dragged on for two months. Towards the fall of February 640 an assault group led by a prominent

and tactically brilliant commander went behind enemy lines, and caused chaos all out of proportion to their size. They laid siege to Babylon (Babylon Fortress), which after a small effort at negotiation, was taken by storm on 6 April 640, which was Good Friday. Having finished there, Amr rode on. He and his army marched (or rode) to a point on the Nile called Umm Dunein. The siege of this city caused Amr and his horsemen considerable difficulty as they lacked siege engines and overwhelming

numbers. After finally taking Umm Dunein, Amr crossed the Nile to Faiyum. There, on 6 June 640, a second army dispatched by Omar arrived at Heliopolis (Heliopolis (ancient)) and began to lay siege to it. Amr retraced his route across the Nile River, and united his forces with those of the second army. They began to prepare for movement towards Alexandria – but scouts reported the approach of the Byzantine army. Butler, Alfred, ''The Arab Conquest of Egypt
