Early 7th century large-scale military conflicts took place between the Byzantine and Sasanian empires, they were two superpowers of time in Anatolia and Syria. The Iranians won the first stage of the war, the Byzantines lost Antioch, Syria, Palestine and Egypt. Shortly after, the Byzantine armies led by Heraclius counterattacked and defeated the Iranians with the help of the Khazars, who made an assault to the Caucasus. During these events, Muslims set up dominance under the leadership of Muhammad in Madina, the caliphs embarked on a rapid Futuhat period with his death. The most eminent Byzantine lands in Palestine, Syria and Egypt fell into the hands of Muslims. On the other hand, the Sassanid empire was demolished by Nihavend War. Thus, shortly after, a new force from the south -the Hejaz region- has participated in the domination struggle region between Sassanid and Byzantine. Soon, this new and energetic force, will try to infiltrate to Anatolia.
