Gaal was a son of Ebed who led an unsuccessful rebellion by the inhabitants of Shechem against Abimelech, who was a judge of Israel. Abimelech according to the word of Zebul his city manager, defeated Gaal and demolished Shechem, spreading salt over it so that it would become difficult or impossible to grow crops, thereby making the town uninhabitable.[1]
