The Battle of Ithrö Zhâda was a battle prior to the Rider War. The battle took place in the hidden fortress of Ithrö Zhâda and was fought between the Urgal army and the dwarves. The city was called "Ithrö Zhâda" by Galbatorix and the Brooding Empire, the dwarves called it "Orthíad".
The Urgal army and Durza killed all the dwarves except one so they could use the tunnels that were connected with Farthen Dûr. In the Battle Under Farthen Dûr, the Urgals snuck into these tunnels and attacked Farthen Dûr. Almost every single Urgal in that battle never came out again. The two Urgal commanders were Tarok and Gashz.
