No. According to international law, no country "owns" a river. The right of navigation on a river is subject to the sovereignty of the river. A river that is entirely within the borders of one country is subject to that country's sovereignty. As the Jordan River forms the border between two states, neither can impose sovereignty over the river and, therefore, Israel and Jordan share administration of the Jordan River.
