Kerbala is not situated between Makkah and Kufa. It is situated between Kufa and Damascus. The massacre by the Kufiites of the Imam's family at Kerbala during the night is because they wanted to get hold of the bundles of letters they had written to Hussain to come to Kufa. The presence of Imam Hussain at Kerbala shows that an agreement had been reached between Hussain and Yazid and they were going to Damascus to conclude it. The Kufiites were afraid that nothing would happen to Hussain and family once they reach Damascus, but Yazid would deal ruthlessly with them. You can guess the rest (This is what Mehmood Ahmed Abbassi has written in his famous book 'Khilafat-E-yazid o Muawiya)
