Ijon:

a ruin, a city of Naphtali, captured by Ben-hadad of Syria at the instance of Asa (1Ki 15:20), and afterwards by Tiglath-pileser of Assyria (2Ki 15:29) in the reign of Pekah; now el-Khiam.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Ijon:

i'-jon (‘iyon; Septuagint in Kings has Ain, or Nain; in Chronicles Ion; Aion): A town in the territory of Naphtali, first mentioned in connection with the invasion of Ben-hadad, in the reign of Baasha. It was captured along with Da and Abel-beth-maacah (1Ki 15:20; 2Ch 16:4). It shared with these cities a similar fate at the hands of Tiglath-pileser in the reign of Pekah (2Ki 15:29). The name survives in that of Merj A‘yun, "meadow of springs," a rich, oval-shaped plain to the Northwest of Tell el Qady, where the LiTany turns sharply westward to the sea. The ancient city may be represented by Tell Dibbin, an important site to the North of the plain.

It was situated a few miles northwest of the site of Dan, in a fertile and beautiful little plain called Merj' Ayun.
