Jabal River

Jabal River
or Baḥr al-Jabal

River, south-central Sudan.

The river flows northward 594 mi (956 km) over the Fula Rapids, past Juba (the head of navigation), and through a vast swampy region. It receives the Ghazāl River at Lake No and then turns east to join the Sūbāt River of western Ethiopia, thereafter forming the White Nile River.
