What does 2 Kings 14:19 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 14:19

Now they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem
Against Amaziah; the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the principal men of it; perhaps those whose sons the king of Israel had carried away as hostages, which they imputed to the ill conduct of Amaziah, as well as the breaking of the wall of Jerusalem, and the pillaging of the temple, and the king's palace:

and he fled to Lachish;
a fortified city in the tribe of Judah, ( Joshua 15:39 ) but they sent after him to Lachish, and slew him there; in a private manner, as Josephus F7 relates.
