Unusually heavy snowfall has caused major disruptions in Greece, Turkey, and Iran, leaving thousands stranded on the highways, prompting airports to halt operations and schools to close.

The blizzard started on January 23 and left parts of the countries covered with a thick layer of snow. In Greece and Iran, the army was called in to rescue stranded drivers, while Istanbul Airport, one of the busiest in Europe, announced the suspension of its flight operations “due to adverse weather conditions.” Flights have been disrupted in other airports, both in Turkey and Greece.
