taking advantage of the turnmoil outside and the scarce number of guards


Explanation:
Una opción. Creo que la debilidad en este caso se refiere a que el número de los guardias era reducido, salvo que el resto de la historia te haga pensar que por alguna razón (hambruna, enfermedades, etc.) los guardias estuvieran débiles físicamente, pero no lo creo.
