Middle East Covered in Exceptionally Rare Snow After Extreme Weather

Snow has been blanketing the Middle East over the last few days, an exceptionally rare event in countries like Israel, Lebanon and Jordan.

Some areas around the city of Jerusalem in Israel have seen up to 15cm of snow, while a resident in Lebanon said that he hasn’t seen anything similar in at least the last eight years.

Blizzard conditions brought the daily commute in Istanbul to a grinding halt, while roads have been blocked and traffic disrupted in Syria.
