APTOPIX Israel Holy Land Drought Photo Essay

In this Tuesday, April. 11, 2017 photo, an Israeli youth shows off the small fish he caught on the banks of the Jordan River near the northern Israeli Kibbutz of Kinneret. Israel is heading into its fifth consecutive year of drought, putting three celebrated biblical bodies of water at risk. The Sea of Galilee, the country's main water source, already stands at a century low and the mighty Jordan River, known for its prominence in the Bible, could be best described along much of its length as a creek. The Dead Sea, a marvel of the natural world, is shrinking. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
