History After Muwatalli II had moved his capital from Hattusa to Tarhuntassa, some countries, Pishuru, Daistipassa, Ishupitta, Marista and fortified cities among them, attacked and destroyed northern Hittite cities (Apol. § 6) (Otten 1981: 10-11).

In his apology, Hattusili III says that he rules all of them; i.e lands of Ishupitta, Marista, Hissashapa, Katapa, Hanhana, Darahna, Hattena, Durmitta, Pala, Tumanna, Gassiya, Sappa, and Hulana-river Land. (Apol. § 8) (Otten 1981: 14-15).

Because the land of Ishupitta city of Kaska didn’t give troops, Mursili II went to Ishupitta and made it vassal again ,and the city agreed to suppy Mursili II with its troops regularly (A.M § 9) (Goetze 1967: 26-27).

While Mursili II was on his way from Tipiya to Hattuša, Ishupitta became hostile again, and was defeated (A.M § 11) (Goetze 1967: 30-31).
