by Ifi Reporter Category:Health Jan 26, 2022

Snow fell tonight in the northern and central mountains and in Jerusalem. The capital was painted white and the access roads to it - one, four-four-three and the tunnel road - were blocked.
There will be no studies in Jerusalem today. At several points in the east of the city and in Beit Safafa, stones were thrown at the leveling vessels. The light rail and police vehicles were also stoned. Police arrested twenty-two suspects.

Due to the storm, no studies will be held today in Mevaseret Zion, the northern Golan Heights, Safed, Kiryat Arba and the Gush Etzion Regional Council.
Starting around 20:00 on Wednesday evening, snow began to pile up in Jerusalem. While major roads have been blocked at times, that hasn’t stopped early snow tourists from seeing the white wonder. The snow is expected to continue to fall until tomorrow morning, and even the children who went to bed at a relatively early hour will be able to enjoy it due to the fact that today (Thursday) there will be no classes in the city.
Sucker Garden in the city center came to life yesterday evening and became the main focus of celebration at the "Alphis" storm. He hosted many families who came from the center of the country to throw snowballs and make snowmen. "My dream was to be in the snow, and here I am," said the boy Ariel from Bnei Brak who arrived in Jerusalem on the first snowy day of winter in the capital.
In the tunnel of the Sucker Garden in Jerusalem towards the Valley of the Cross, a party began last night with the participation of hundreds of people organized by the Jerusalem Municipality. At the same time, the Khan Theater, a Jerusalem cultural icon, cleared the snow to prevent the collapse of the special and ancient structure. Yesterday evening, several main roads were blocked for a while due to the accumulation of snow and ice. At around 23:00, it was reported that Road 1 from the Sha'ar HaGai interchange to the entrance to Jerusalem was blocked in both directions. In addition, the Cedars Tunnel at the exit from Jerusalem and Road 443 from the exit from the city to Modi'in, in both directions, were blocked.
The salt levels and sprinklers began to work immediately after the snow began to pile up, but this did not prevent minor accidents. On Herzl Boulevard in the city, an empty bus and two vehicles slipped on the frozen road. None of the passengers and drivers were injured. And while it was snowing outside, many houses in the city were frozen inside as well - in about 2,000 homes across Jerusalem, power outages were recorded during the evening.
In East Jerusalem, there was also a riot in the snow. Stones were thrown at the light rail in the area of ​​the Shuafat station, and as a result, its activity in some of the line was stopped. In A-Tor, stones and objects were thrown at a police car, the car was damaged and 14 suspects were arrested.
