Snowy Jerusalem

Snowy Jerusalem

The worst snowstorm in 20 years hit Jerusalem this week. It shut down government offices, public transport and schools in Jerusalem and along the northern Israeli region bordering on Lebanon on Thursday. Many Palestinians in the hilly occupied West Bank were also snowed in and dozens were forced to flee flooded homes. Elisha Peleg, an official in charge of emergencies with Israel's municipality for Jerusalem, urged residents to remain at home and stay off the streets, telling Israel Army Radio the area had overnight seen its greatest snowfall since 1992.
