      Netanyahu Holds Emergency Meeting for Snowstorm

      While children are out on the streets playing in the snow, others are surveying the damage caused by downed tree branches, downed power lines and other issues caused by the rare snow storm which has affected Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. On Friday, Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu held an early morning phone consultation with Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitz and Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino.

      Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked the rescue workers, police and regular citizens who have united to assist with stranded motorists and other emergencies since the storm began on Thursday. Other areas of the country have been hit with heavy rain and wind.
