Snow in the Middle East?
It’s actually more common than you would think.
In Israel there’s even a ski resort in the Golan Heights.
Flurries can also be found further south in Jerusalem which at times does see accumulating snowfall.
Snow isn’t new to the Middle East but it is very rare and usually only lasts a day or two before it melts.
Israel isn’t the only spot in the Middle East that sees snow.
Snow can also be found in parts of Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
