A Palestinian woman sits with her sons, whose house was destroyed in the most recent Israeli offensive on Gaza Strip, during a heavy winter storm, at her a tent in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip on January 8, 2015. A storm buffeted the Middle East with blizzards, rain and strong winds on Wednesday, keeping people at home across much of the region and raising concerns for Syrian refugees facing freezing temperatures in flimsy shelters. The storm is forecast to last several days, threatening further disruption in Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, which have all been affected.
