Marianne,


you should distinguish between the assertion of Hatschepsut "there were foreigners in Awaris" which concerns an earlier period before Ahmose and her mentioning the expulsion of the Hyksos population of Egypt (which was by her own decree). 

Thuthmosis III is clear in this retrospect. "But it happened in later times as the garrison was (came?) there in the town Of Sharuhen, that from Jurza to the outer ends of the earth (every man) had become rebellious against his majesty" This means from Jurza southwards was all under controll. There is no place for a rebellious Awaris between the period of Ahmose and Thutmosis III.

Best regards,
