Surah Al-Isra’, Verses 5-6

فَإِذَا جَآءَ وَعْدُ أُولَـاهُمَا بَعَثْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ عِبَادًا لَّنَآ أُوْلِى بَأْسٍ شَدِيدٍ فَجَاسُواْ خِلَـالَ الدِّيَارِ وَكَانَ وَعْدًا مَّفْعُولاً - ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَا لَكُمُ الْكَرَّةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَمْدَدْنَـاكُم بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَجَعَلْنَـاكُمْ أَكْثَرَ نَفِيرًا

{5. So when the promise came for the first of them, We sent against you servants of Ours - those of great military might, and they probed into the homes. And it was a promise fulfilled. 6. Then We gave back to you a return victory over them. And We reinforced you with wealth and sons and made you more numerous in manpower.}

The First Episode of Mischief caused by the Jews, and their Punishment for it:

Allah  (SWT) told His Messenger (SAW) that when the Jews committed transgression and aggression, Allah (SWT) gave their enemies power over them to destroy their country and enter the innermost parts of their homes. Their humiliation and subjugation was a befitting punishment, and your Lord is never unfair or unjust to His servants. They had rebelled and killed many of the Prophets (AS) and scholars. Ibn Jarir (ra) recorded that ibn Al-Musayyib (ra) said: `Nebuchadnezzar conquered Ash-Sham (Greater Syria, including Palestine), destroying Jerusalem and killing them, then he came to Damascus and found blood boiling in a censer. He asked them: What is this blood They said: We found our forefathers doing this. Because of that, he killed seventy thousand of the believers and others, then the blood stopped boiling. This report is Sahih from Sa`id bin Al-Musayyib, and this event is well-known, as he (Nebuchadnezzar) killed their nobles and scholars, and did not leave alive anyone who knew the Tawrah by heart. He also took many prisoners.
