Israel and the Gaza Strip have been hit by a winter storm, with freezing rain leading to severe flooding. Refugees' impoverished homes in the Jabalia refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip were inundated as a storm system lashed the region. Flood warnings have also been issued for the Judean Desert and Dead Sea regions. In this gallery, IBTimesUK takes a look at some of the photos of the areas worst affected by the floods:
