Heavy snowfall has hit parts of Palestine, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan on April 21, 2019. This has happened for the first time in 23 years.
A video that went viral on social media showed the snow-covered streets and trees in these Levant countries.
The severity of snowfall was extreme in Palestine and Syria (as compared to Jordan) where the streets, houses as well as the cars were all covered in snow.
The snowfall in these countries has not been this heavy since the last 23 years, and the people living there are of the opinion that it could adversely affect the crops in the countries.
