The reasons for invading "Bani-Qurayza "
That part was removed from my post,if it's not against the site policy i'd like it to be shown .
During the battle of the trench :
[ Qurayish and Ghatfan, encouraged by the exiled Bani Al-Nadheer Jews, wanted to eliminate the Prophet once and for all. They gathered up a great army and put Yathrib"Al madina" under siege [Saheeh Bukhari - 4103]. Mohammed , based on a suggestion by Salman Al-Farisi"persian", dug a trench around Yathrib, except for the "Bani-Qurayza "side that is, because they had great fortresses and it would be practically impossible for the Pagan Arabs of "Qurayish" to get through their fortresses unless Bani-Qurayza allowed it. Now since "Muhammad" and Bani-Qurayza had a treaty, Muhammad had nothing to fear [Saheeh Muslim - 1766 and Sunan Abi Dawood - 3004] as they have their back well covered from Bani-Qurayza side.

Now the siege has started, Mohammed was running low on food and resources ,and above all they were informed that Bani-Qurayza has broken the treaty and made an alliance with the "jews of bani al nadheer "and the "pagans of Qurayish"provided the pagans with food and supplies,more than that ,they prepared mainly (housand and five hundred swords, two thousand spears,three hundred armours and five hundred shields) for attacking the muslims on their blind spot from behind, taking advantage of their current weak state.
