Rashidi forces led by young Saud bin Abdulaziz Al Rashid defeated the forces of Ibn Saud. The main significance of the battle was the death of Ibn Saud's British Military Advisor, Captain William Shakespear. This diminished the relationship between Ibn Saud and the British changing the course of the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire.
