I believe this is when Santiago sees a pair of hawks attacking each other and has a vision of armies riding through the oasis. The Camel driver says Santiago should warn the village chiefs of an impending army. Eventually Five hundred troops arrive in the city on the pretence of peace. The chefs are ready though thanks to Santiago's vision.
