September. The Amir 'Abdullah then surrendered and was sent a
prisoner to Constantinople, where, contrary to the hopes with which
he had been amused, he was executed. Dara'iyah, after being plundered
was razed to the ground ; and fortifications of every sort were destroyed
throughout the whole of the conquered districts.
The Egyptians, after the destruction of the Wahhabi capital,
annexed Hasa, where, as well as in Najd, military posts were establisLed
by them at various points. They also undertook a number of expeditions
against refractory tribes; but they did not establish anythingapproachino-
to effective control of the country; and, for the most part, they failed
even to understand their political environment. The strain of a general
occupation having become too great to be endured, the Egyptian
troops in July 1819 evacuated Hasa, which was made over to the
chiefs of the Bani Khalid, the original rulers of the district before
the Wahhabis, to be held in dependence on the Porte; and in the
following month Ibrahim Pasha himself, accompanied by the bulk
of the Egyptian army of occupation, which never so far as is
known amounted to more than several thousand men, withdraw from
Najd to Hijaz. Some Egyptian garrisons, however, seem to have re
mained in Najd until 1824, after which none are mentioned; but the
sovereignty of the Sultan of Turkey was not expressly repudiated
after their departure, and a nominal tribute even continued to be paid
him by the Wahhabi Amir.

The effects of the punishment of the Qawasim by the British expedi

thereafter, occurring at a time when the Wahhabis were in a depressed
condition and when their local influence was weakened to such an extent
that it had almost ceased to exist, seemed to prove that the innate greed
and ferocity of the Arab tribes, not Wahhabi instigation or compulsion,
were the true causes of maritime disorder in the Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. .
