Kinneret Up Four Centimeters

The water level of Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) stood at 212.79 meters below sea level on Friday.

The level is four centimeters higher than Thursday's reading and slightly less than four meters below the maximum level at which floodgates at the southern end of the lake would have to be opened to avoid flooding along the lakeshore.
