Pishīn, town, Balochistān province, Pakistan. The present town, founded by the British as a military and civil station in 1883, is a market centre and has a noteworthy rest house with a fine garden. It is connected by road with nearby Quetta city.
 Pishīn district is located north of Quetta district and fronts Afghanistan on the east and northeast. It comprises a series of long valleys 4,500–5,500 ft (1,370–1,680 m) above sea level enclosed by the Toba Kākar Range to the north; vegetation is sparse. The district is drained by the Pishīn Lora River and its tributaries. Crops grown in the valleys include wheat, barley, corn (maize), and potatoes; grapes, apples, apricots, and peaches are also economically important. Sheep and goats are herded. The main ethnic groups are Pashtun Kākaṛ and Tarīn. Wool, carpets, and sheepskin coats are locally produced; coal is mined. A major road and railway (completed 1888) connect Quetta city with Chaman, a commercial town, near the Afghanistan border. The railway runs through the Khojak tunnel (6,398 ft above sea level) in the Toba Kākar Range; it is one of the largest tunnels, with a length of 2.4 mi (3.9 km), in southern Asia. Pop. (1998) town, 20,479.



The Dori, also called Lora and Kadanai is a river of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is a tributary of the Arghandab River and sub tributary of the Helmand River and runs for 320 kilometres (200 mi) through Kandahar Province in Afghanistan and Balochistan in Pakistan.

Harīrūd Written By: The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica 

Harīrūd, in full Rūdkhāneh-ye Harīrūd, Turkmen Tejen, Latin Arius, river, Central Asia. It rises on the western slopes of the rugged Selseleh-ye Kūh-e Bābā range, an outlier of the Hindu Kush mountains, in central Afghanistan. Flowing west past Chaghcharān and the ancient city of Herāt (whence its name is derived), then north, it forms sections of the Afghan–Iranian and Iranian–Turkmen frontiers. After crossing into Turkmenistan, where it is called the Tejen, the river disappears into the wastes of the Karakum Desert. The Harīrūd irrigates some of Afghanistan’s productive, cultivated land. Its estimated length is 700 miles (1,100 km).

They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.”For they have conspired together with one mind; Against Thee do they make a covenant:The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;Assyria also has joined with them; They have become a help to the children of Lot. Selah.Deal with them as with Midian, As with Sisera [and] Jabin, at the torrent of Kishon,Who were destroyed at En-dor, Who became as dung for the ground.Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, And all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna,Who said, “Let us possess for ourselves The pastures of God.”O my God, …
