I'm interested in ancient Judea, from the dissolution of the monarchy to the beginning of John Hyrcanus. It was a small wedge to the west of the Dead Sea. What was the strategic significance of this region? Has the region had a similar significance in other periods, like the Egyptians/ Hittites, Romans, or Crusaders?

Edit: Thanks for the answers. I'm still looking for its strategic value for the Levant, which we know iswas a major commercial thoroughfare. It appears to be a stronghold of some sort.

I recall something about mountain fortresses
