The Gush Etzion regional council in the West Bank resolved on Thursday to suspend classes for school students in light of the inclement weather.
The council released a press communique to all media outlets announcing that the accumulation of snow and the roadway blockages that resulted from the snowfall forced the cancellation.
The army and the council will soon begin deploying snow removers to open up traffic roadways for commuters.
