thank you for answering the question. My answer is that the Assyrian Empire is closer in location to the kingdom of Israel than the Kingdom of Judah that makes Kingdom of Israel vulnerable to Assyrian Empire. is this right? thank you.

Yes. That's why I think Israel was more vulnerable -- it was closer to the Assyrian Empire.
