The map of the network

The Arab Mashreq international Road Network is an international road network between the Arab countries of the Mashriq (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Kuwait, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Oman and Yemen). In addition, part of the network passes through Israel, which is not a party to the agreement which created it.

The network is a result of the 2001 Agreement on International Roads in the Arab Mashreq, a United Nations multilateral treaty which entered into force in 2003 and has been ratified by 13 of the 14 (all except Israel) countries which the network serves.
