This image of the eastern Mediterranean Sea includes the island-nation of Cyprus (center left), Turkey (above) and Syria (center and lower right), with Lebanon and parts of Israel/Palestine visible along the coast towards the bottom.

Also of interest are several lakes, lined up from top to bottom along the right edge: the reservoir of the Karakaya Dam and Lake Atatürk Dam, both in Turkey, and Lake Assad, in Syria. All are located along the Euphrates River.
