Sandstorm in Jerusalem

Polluted air in Jerusalem
Today Jerusalem is suffering from highly polluted air and officials tell the residents to refrain from any sportive outdoor activities. As soon as you step outside, you start choking. The air is full of dust and sand and the first thing I did this morning was sweeping my porch. Tons of sand had been gathering there and even my door handle was covered in dirt.
The sandstorm continues until tonight and then the predicted rain is hopefully going to clean out the air.
