The Karasu (Arabic: قره صو‎‎) or Aswad (Arabic: الأسود‎‎) is a river in the provinces of Gaziantep and Hatay in Turkey. For part of its length it forms the border with Aleppo Governorate in Syria.[1] It joins the Afrin River at the site of the former Lake Amik, and its waters now flow to the Orontes by a canal.[2]
