This week Israel saw an unusual winter storm that has almost completely covered the entire Golan Heights with a blanket of snow.
Colonel Penioni Naliva, a Fijian soldier at the Golan Heights says the rare natural phenomenon has brought people from across Israel and Syria to the Golan Heights to see, touch, and take photographs of the snow.
Naliva says even though this is not as big as the monster storms some are experiencing in other places of the world, this much snow is very rare to see in Israel.

Fijian soldiers serving at the Golan Heights for over a year also experienced snow for the first time.
According to Colonel Naliva, their base was covered in snow and they even built their first snowman.
