After two years of disappointment, snow has finally hit Jerusalem on Friday, as residents woke up to a white city.
The snow is expected to continue falling throughout the morning, after four centimeters (1.575 inches) of snowfall have already piled up in the streets of Israel’s capital.
Schools and public transportation across the city have been shut down, including intercity bus routes to Jerusalem. Police officials have instructed to halt any public buses making their way from Tel Aviv to the capital, except for buses coming in from northern Israel.
