RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority officials have decided to keep all government institutions and schools closed again on Sunday as the West Bank struggles to battle historic snowfall and record low temperatures.

The PA Information Office said in a statement on Saturday that in order to "ensure the safety of citizens," all state institutions besides hospital emergency units and the civil defense would remain closed again on Sunday.

Earlier on Saturday, civil defense forces public relations director Luay Bani Odeh appealed to citizens not to leave their homes in the West Bank as authorities sought to improve road conditions.
