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 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]
