Nice quiz, Giorgios. Though... did you not search before you made it? QM published a quiz 3 years ago and I did 4 sequels. Most of these answers were covered. I think Cyprus, Lake Nasser, Islamabad, and the West Bank are unique.

Yeah, I'm sorry about that, I had no idea the subject was that well covered. I think I went straight for "Middle East Geography" when I searched for other quizzes, as I thought a non-geography-oriented A-Z quiz wouldn't have so many geography questions (as was the case with Russia A-Z, to which my quiz doesn't have many similarities). I guess I can add a link to the search results for "Middle East A-Z", or I can delete the quiz if you like. Or I can try to make more questions unique, but with five other quizzes already, that should be quite difficult.
