A high oblique view of the Middle East centered approximately 28.0 degrees north and 34.0 degrees east. Portions of the countries of Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia are visible. The Dead Sea Rift Valley continuing into the Gulf of Aqaba marks the boundary between Israel and Jordan. The vegetation change in the Sinai Peninsula is the border between the Gaza strip and Egypt. In Egypt the Suez Canal connects the Gulf of Suez with the Mediterranean Sea and forms the western boundary of the Sinai Peninsula. The green ribon of the Nile River is in marked contrast to this arid region. Even the Jordan River does not support large scale agriculture. This makes water the most important resource in this region.
