Baal-Hazor:

having a courtyard, or Baal's village, the place on the borders of Ephraim and Benjamin where Absalom held the feast of sheep-shearing when Amnon was assassinated (2Sa 13:23). Probably it is the same with Hazor (Neh 11:33), now Tell' Asur, 5 miles north-east of Bethel.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Baal-Hazor:

ba-al-ha'-zor ba‘al chatsor; Bailasor, Bel-la-sor: A place on the property of Absalom where his sheep-shearers were gathered, beside Ephraim (2Sa 13:23). The sheep-shearing was evidently the occasion of a festival which was attended by Absalom's brethren. Here he compassed the death of Amnon in revenge for the outrage upon his sister. The place may be identified with Tell ‘Asur, a mountain which rises 3,318 ft. above the sea, 4 miles Northeast of Bethel. rine Kubbet el Baul may retain the old name.
