Which sea is mentioned in Ezekiel 39-11?

It says, "travel east toward the sea". Is Ezekiel talking about the Dead Sea? Because you would have to travel west to get to the Mediterranean sea coast?

In my opinion, the sea mentioned in the verse cited in the question would be either the Sea of Galilee (also known as the Lake of Gennesaret or the Sea of Tiberias) or the Dead Sea (both on the eastern side of Israel), as opposed to the Mediterranean Sea. Commentaries that I have read seem to favor interpreting the reference in the verse to be speaking of the Dead Sea.
