What does 2 Kings 6:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 6:8

Then the king of Syria warred against Israel
Proclaimed war against him; on what account, or how long it was after Naaman his general came with a letter of recommendation from him to the king of Israel, and had his cure, is not said:

and took counsel with his servants;
his privy counsellors, or the general officers of his army:

saying, in such and such a place shall be my camp;
in some covered hidden place, as the Targum; where he would lie encamped waiting in ambush, to fall upon the king of Israel unawares, as he and his forces should pass that way; the place, no doubt, was named by the king of Syria, though not recorded by the historian; or, as the words may be rendered,

the place of such and such a man;
for, as Ben Melech observes, "peloni almoni" are used of persons whose names are either unknown or concealed.
