Snowfall in Baghdad, for the second time in a decade.
What a strange sight.
Baghdad University, #Iraq covered with snow ❄️ this week.

Mountainous northern Iraq tends to get snow each year — Kurdish peshmerga forces were pictured training shirtless in the snow earlier this year — but the last time it fell on the capital was in 2008. https://t.co/0qDjaOyHmf pic.twitter.com/33QsTVpSrm

#Snow has fallen in #Iraq! A beautiful landscape but another #challenge for the 1.4 million #IDPs living in #camps. The #restoration of basic services remains a necessary pre-requisite for their return and #clearance is key before the #rehabilitation of #critical #infrastructure. pic.twitter.com/QjCaLfwNTO
