It is very very rare to discover buildings with their roofs intact in Israel. But such a discovery was made at Tell Jemmeh, a site located about 8 mi. south of Gaza. These buildings evidently date to the days of the Judean kings Hezekiah and/or Manasseh in the 7th century B.C. It may very well be that the great Assyrian ruler, Esarhaddon may have actually stayed in this palace located above these structures (2 Kings 19:37; Ezra 4:2; Isa 37:38)!!
Unfortunately, all of these marvelous structures have been destroyed by rain and wind.
