al-Qamus Fort

Qamus was the name of one of the fortresses of Al-Rabi ibn Abu al-Huqayq, Banu Qurayza situated near Khaybar. The fortress was attacked by Muslim forces and defeated. It was after this event that Muhammad married Safiyyah bint Huyayy. Although traditionally it is believed to be the Qamus fort but there is no direct archaeological evidence.
