JERUSALEM (Nov. 19)
The first, but short lived snow of the season fell last Tuesday in northern Israel.
IDF soldiers posted on Mt. Hermon were prepared for the first few snowflakes that fell on them Tuesday morning, having already been equipped with heavy winter clothing and boots.
The soldiers were also comforted by electric blankets, which are new to their gear this year.
The snowfall however, was quite light. The little that fell melted immediately, and the precipitation turned into heavy rain later in the day.
