The war with King Hazael of Aram (2 Kings 8:28-8:29)

“King Ahaziah of Judah went with King Jehoram son of King Ahab to make war against King Hazael of Aram at Ramoth-gilead, where the Arameans wounded King Jehoram.  King Jehoram returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which the Arameans had inflicted on him at Ramoth, when he fought against King Hazael of Aram.  King Ahaziah son of King Jehoram of Judah went down to see King Jehoram of Israel, the son of King Ahab, in Jezreel, because he was wounded.”

There was another battle at Ramoth-gilead with the Arameans. This seems to be a favorite spot to do battle with the Arameans. This is the same spot where King Ahab of Israel was killed when King Jehoshaphat of Judah went to fight the Arameans in 853 BCE, 1 Kings, chapter 22. Now it is 12 years later in 841 BCE, when disaster strikes again.
