In pictures: Jerusalem covered with snow
February 20, 2015

The city of Jerusalem as well as the Palestinian Territories were hit with the snowstorm “Jana” on Friday. Damages were recorded due to the snowstorm most notably the injury of the 12-year old Ramadan Khalil Sarhan by an electric shock in the stomach while playing with the snow in Shu’fat refugee camp. The rainwater and snow also flooded several house in the Old City of Jerusalem and Silwan including the family houses of Bayoumi, Zaytoon and Abu Rajab. The ceiling of “Madaa Creative Center” in the neighborhood of Wadi Hilweh also collapsed; note that the ceiling was used as a club for the children. Eight perennial trees fell at Al-Aqsa Mosque because of the snowstorm where most of them were between Al-Rahmeh Gate and the road between Lions Gate and Al-Qibali Mosque.
