"I first fought these at the battle of Al-Arish"

Arish (or el-Arish) is a town in north eastern Egypt, in the Sinai peninsula, on the Mediterranean Sea. The city grew around a Bedouin settlement near the ancient Egyptian Ptolemaic Dynasty outpost of Rhinocolura. According to Bartomaeus, Al-Arish was the  site of an ancient battle between Assyrian and Egyptians.
