How far was Misrephoth-maim from the waters of Merom?

Joshua 11:8 (ESV)

8 And the LORD gave them into the hand of Israel, who struck them and chased them as far as Great Sidon and Misrephoth-maim, and eastward as far as the Valley of Mizpeh. And they struck them until he left none remaining.

The armies of Israel chased the Canaanites west to Misrephoth-maim. This was a distance of around fifteen miles (twenty-four kilometres).
