During this campaign, Assyrian texts note that Tiglath-pileser received tribute from Syro-Palestinian kings including Tubail of Tyre, Menahem of Israel, and even Rezin of Damascus. These payments were probably offered only as nominal tribute designed to avoid direct confrontation, since Tiglath-pileser was not yet moving into southern Syria.
