In recent years, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, there were snow, but so intense blizzards are rare in this region. Under the snow lies the northern and eastern part of Israel and the Palestinian territories. White is in Bethlehem, Nazareth and Ramallah. Cities are deserted.
Jerusalem is covered with snow, including the historic old town, which is an unusual sight. Many of the streets are the closed, do not work shops and offices, schools and colleges have canceled classes. In many places there is no electricity. On Saturday prayer at the Western Wall came a few Jews.
Jerusalem covered with snow makes a big impression.
