The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers flow through Iraq and meet north of the Persian gulf.
The Nile in Egypt

Obviously, a body of water the size of a stream or river will succumb to the immutable forces of gravitational attraction, inertia, and the other laws of physics, and be forced to flow downhill. There are some rivers that run from south to north (which is opposite of most), and some that seem to run "backwards", but no rivers run uphill. The starting point of all rivers and streams is of a higher elevation than… Read More
Water doesn't flow uphill-- at least not for any significant length of time.
