== == People were deported on more than one occasion from the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Tiglath-Pileser III was the first king to deport people from the Northern Kingdom in 732 B.C. (2 Kings 15:29).

Shalmaneser V attacked Israel after they rebelled again, but died during the siege of its capital Samaria. His successor, Sargon II deported about 27,000 people in 722 B.C.

Shalmaneser.2Ki_17:3 Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against him; and Hoshea became his vassal, and paid him tribute money.2Ki_17:4 And the king of Assyria uncovered a conspiracy by Hoshea; for he had sent messengers to So, king of Egypt, and brought no tribute to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year. Therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.2Ki_17:5 Now the king of Assyria went throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria and besieged it for three years.2Ki_17:6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria and carried Israel away to Assyria, and placed them in Halah and by the Habor, the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.

Southern Kingdom (Kingdom of Israel). It is not exactly known where Daniel was born but you can assume that he was born in the locality near Jerusalem (Kingdom of Israel). Daniel was taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon when King Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem in 587 BC. Daniel was taken captive prior to the fall of Jerusalem 606 BC. At that time there were two kingdoms of Israelites and they were the Kingdoms of Judah (around Jerusalem) and the Kingdom Israel (the northern area of Israel). The end of the Northern Kingdom (Kingdom of Judah) came in 721 BC. Therefore Daniel had to come from the southern kingdom (Kingdom of Israel).

Judah sought an alliance with Assyria against Israel, which was threatening to invade Jerusalem and depose the king. Assyria conquered Israel in 722 BCE and made the former kingdom into the province of Samaria. Assyria then turned its attention to Judah, with the intention of extending its empire southwards, but found the fortified city of Jerusalem too hard to defeat.

The Assyrian king, Sargon, overran Samaria, the last remaining city of Israel, in 722 BCE and took many of the Israelites captive, apart from those able to flee to Judah or Egypt. The captives never returned and appear to have assimilated into the population of surrounding areas.

Kings of Israel reigned in "Samaria." The kings of the Jews [Judah; David, Solomon, etc] reigned in "Jerusalem.""Now Jehoram the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned twelve years." (II Kings 3:1)"In the three and twentieth year of Joash the son of Ahaziah king of Judah Jehoahaz the son of Jehu began to reign over Israel in Samaria..." (II Kings 13:1)"The the king of Assyria came up throughout the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years. In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods, and walked in the statutes of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel, which they had made. (II Kings 17:5-8)"...the Lord removed Israel out of His sight, as He had said by all His servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day. And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava... and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof. (II Kings 17:23-24)"Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?" (Isa.10:11)

While King Solomon reigned there was peace, but when he died the peace had stopped. The kingdom then split to the north half Israel and the south half Judah. The Northern part, Israel, eventually turned to polytheism and was destroyed by assyria, while the Southern part continued to believe in one God, and their faith was renewed by the prophets.
