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.

Snow fell in Palestine before the Zionists arrived, and it will continue falling after their departure....

1 ) Jihane / Palestine/France - None of the Israeli papers reported any snow, in fact they had warmth and sunshine. I think the Zionist caused the snow to ONLY fall on the Palestinians to make their life harder. Abbas should go to the UN immediately and complain!

Funny, Haaretz had an article on "Snow blankets northern Israel". It mentioned Safed, the Galilee and the Occupied Syrian Golan. My family there told me about snow too, maybe it only fell on the Arab villages. ....God bless the snow ! I really don't understand why Zionists lie everytime they open their mouth, even when it has no importance. Maybe you should go back playing with the other kids in the sandbox.

Palestinians living within the state of Israel are not "Israeli Arabs". They are "Israeli Palestinians", "Palestinian citizens of Israel" or "'48 Palestinians", and we all know why Israelis insist on calling them "Arabs". "Snow makes us united". Waw, is that a new Hasbara line ? Just as snow, Akka, Haifa and Yaffa were there before "the Jewish State" and they will still be there after it's end. at-thawra hatta an-nasr !
