- Damia Bridge
The Damia Bridge, also known as the Adam Bridge (Hebrew: גשר אדם), is a bridge over the Jordan River between the West Bank and Jordan. It is about 50 km north of Jericho and is the location of an Israeli border checkpoint.
In Operation Markolet (known as the Night of the bridges) on the night of 16-17 June 1946, the bridge was blown up by Haganah forces.
Nearby, east of the river, is the small mound known as Tell Adamiyeh, which has long been identified as the site of the Biblical City of Adam.
