Once they begin, they could snowball and reach the major cities of the Hejaz, including Jeddah, Mecca, Taif, and Medina.
Like every district of Arabia proper, Hejaz has a town and a nomad population, but almost no intermediate agricultural class.
Further interference with the Hejaz, unless invited, would be unjustifiable.
Meanwhile, the caliph committed to him the government of the Hejaz.
But a division sent by Merwan to the Hejaz was cut to pieces.
Abraha in his invasion of the Hejaz was accompanied by chiefs of Kinda.
In like manner that arm of the sea on which Aylah is situated extends between al Tur and Hejaz.
By this time, all the outlying garrisons had been disposed of, and the Hejaz generally cleared of Turks.
The northern part of Hejaz contains but few inhabited sites.
Of the history of these during the next few centuries little is known, except in the case of the Hejaz.
