Snow falls in Palestine

Feb. 18, 2012 9:13 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 19, 2012 12:35 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Snow started to fall on elevated areas and hilltops in Hebron, Bethlehem and Ramallah as a fierce storm started to move across the West Bank.

Onlookers in Hebron say snow started to blanket mountains in the city and the neighboring towns of Halhul, Beit Ummar and Beit Fajjar.

Director of the Palestinian Meteorological Department Yousif Abu Asaad says snow started in the south and will spread to the north in areas which are more than 800 meters above the sea level. He says the storm will continue until Sunday evening and is expected to blanket heights with a layer of 5-10 centimeters.
