In Pictures: Stunning Scenes of Snowfall From Across the Middle East

Parts of the Middle East and North Africa have been blanketed in snow as temperatures dropped to below 0 degrees Celsius in countries like Saudi Arabia, specifically the northwestern regions, as well as in Egypt’s Saint Catherine in South Sinai, Jordan, and Kurdistan in northern Iraq. Interestingly, there was also heavy rain and thunderstorms that lead official governments across the region to urge their residents to stay warm and avoid venturing out to isolated places.
