i remember reading about a battle in which the muslim army under Khalid bin Waleed laid siege to a city with a trench around it and Khalid RA had the old and weak camels slaughtered to fill up the trench and cross it. What was the name?

This happened in the battle that is called Dhat al-'Uyun or Al-Anbar, fought during the caliphate of Abu Bakr, against the Persians.
