Heavy flooding in the northern West Bank and southern Gaza Strip has damaged hundreds of homes, officials said, while snowstorms blew through the southern West Bank on Wednesday.

At least 17 people have died in the winter storm in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Israel and Palestine. Meteorological agencies in Israel and Lebanon both called it the worst storm in 20 years.
