10-Feb-2008 -- We decided to visit confluence 28N 48E on Sunday, 10 February 2008 after our visit to 27N 49E, while being on a trip in those regions.

The Confluence is at the crossing of asphalt roads, close to it is a gas station. The area where it is lying is called Jaww al-Niswān and it is a flat and sandy place. There are only few stones and it is to the south of seasonal swaps called Khubārā and Ḍuḥā, being filled with rain water during the time of our visit.

The nearest village to it is Abraq al-Kibrīt and this Confluence is in al-Nu`ayriyya government.
