PHOTO GALLERY: Syrian refugees struggle with snow storm, 5 dead in Lebanon and Syria
, Thursday 8 Jan 2015
The wintry weather, which swooped across much of the Middle East on Tuesday, killed three Syrians in Lebanon and two in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on Wednesday, AP reported.


The powerful weather is likely to persist across the region over the upcoming few days according the Weather Channel.



The Syrian war led to a massive humanitarian crisis; around 9 million Syrians have fled their homes since March 2011. More than 3 million sought refugee abroad, mostly in Syria's neighbours Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, while 6.5 million are displaced within their own country.
