Israel: Rebirth of the River Zin in Negev Desert‏

The River Zin marked the border of ancient Israel in biblical times. Beersheba is where Abraham arrived 3,700 years ago and dug a well, planted a tamarisk tree and made a covenant of peace with the Philistine king Abimelech. The occasional flooding of the Negev Desert is mentioned in the Hebrew Testament.
