The Jordan River (in traditional English River Jordan) (Hebrew:נְהַר הַיַּרְדֵּןnehar hayarden; Arabic:نَهْر الْأُرْدُنّnahr al-urdun) is a 251-kilometre (156mi)-long river in West Asia flowing to the Dead Sea. Israel and the West Bank border the river to the west, while the Golan Heights and Jordan lie to its east. Both Jordan and the West Bank take their names from the river.
The streams coming together to create the River Jordan in its upper basin are, west to east:
Iyyon (Hebrew: עיון Iyyon, Arabic: دردره Dardara or براغيث Braghith – on old PEF maps (1871–77) as Wadi el-Kharrar in the Merj 'Ayun area and Nahr Bareighit in its lower part), a stream which flows from Lebanon.
Hasbani (Arabic: الحاصباني Hasbani, Hebrew: either שניר Snir or Hatzbani), a stream which flows from Mount Lebanon.
