Some ten centimeters of snow had accumulated Friday morning in the northern Golan Heights from Kibbutz Ortal northwards.

A number of area roads were partially closed and snow removal was in progress. Public transportation was shut down in the northern Golan until further notice.

The Golan Heights regional municipality warned tourists not to cross fences and walk into fields due to the risk of stepping on mines.

Snow was also coming down Friday morning in Safed, Meron, Sasa and in Ma'alot.

Police told motorists not to come to Safed as the access roads to the city were closed. A number of vehicles were stuck on the roads leading to the Galilee city.
