Landlocked salt lake between Israel and Jordan. The lowest body of water on the earth, it averages about 1,312 ft (400 m) below sea level. At 50 mi (80 km) long and up to 11 mi (18 km) wide, its N half belongs to Jordan, while its S half is divided between Jordan and Israel. After the 1967 Arab-Israeli War, however, the Israeli army remained in occupation of the entire W shore.

It has been associated with biblical history since the time of Abraham.
