Tigris and Euphrates Rivers Both rivers begin in Turkey and flow south through Iraq. In southern Iraq, the two rivers join to form one waterway. That waterway, Al- Arab Shatt, empties into the Persian Gulf. The rivers provide water for both drinking and farming. The countries that share these rivers have had problems over how the water should be shared.

Jordan River The Jordan River begins at the Sea of Galilee and empties into the Dead Sea. The river is a source of potable (clean) water for many countries, including: Israel, Jordan, and Syria. People living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip rely on this water supply. The river also serves as a political boundary between Israel, the West Bank, & Jordan.

Suez Canal A 120-mile man-made waterway that is used to transport (move) goods to and from all three continents. It connects the Red Sea with the Mediterranean Sea. At the northern end of the Red Sea, ships can enter the canal and can get to the Mediterranean Sea without having to sail all around the continent of Africa.

Suez Canal

Persian Gulf L ocated between the country of Iran and the Arabian Peninsula. It is the primary (main) way oil is shipped from the countries of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and other countries in the region. Oil producing counties depend on the Persian Gulf as a shipping route.

Strait of Hormuz It connects the Persian Gulf to the Arabian Sea. It is very important because any ships coming in or out of the Persian Gulf must navigate through this very narrow waterway.

Arabian Sea This is located north of the Indian Ocean. It forms part of a key shipping route between Europe and India through the Suez Canal.

Red Sea It lies between Africa and Asia. Because of its location between Europe, Persian Gulf, and East Asia, heavy shipping traffic takes place here. During the Roman Empire, it was an important route for trade between Rome and China.

Gaza Strip It is located along the southeastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. The Gaza Strip is a rectangular territory that is about 25 miles long and 4 to 5 miles wide. It’s one of the world’s most densely populated areas. The Gaza Strip is often politically unstable and there have been many outbreaks of violence over the last 60 years.
