RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Continued snowfall for the second day Thursday blanketed the West Bank that was also paralyzed by strikes and stormy weather conditions.

A number of deaths were reported as a result of the blizzard while dozens were injured other than the destruction of hothouses and big damage to many homes, which were inundated in the resultant flooding.

Farmers suffered heavy losses and life came to a standstill in most areas of the West Bank.

Hundreds of thousands of students remained at home as mountain tops in occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank were covered with snow.

The snow storm and heavy rain exposed the bad condition of infrastructure in various West Bank areas especially in the plains of Tulkarem and Qalqilia.
