The Israeli meteorological service warned the public about the expected drought and extreme temperatures during Passover, from Tuesday to Thursday.

This April will be the hottest in the last 30 years. On Wednesday, the scorching heat will peak, when temperatures exceed 40 degrees throughout southern and central Israel, possibly breaking the record for hot days in April.

Recent days have seen the United Arab Emirates and Oman grappling with unprecedented flooding, underscoring the palpable effects of climate change in the region.

This unusual weather phenomenon highlights the increasing environmental challenges facing these areas, traditionally known for their arid conditions.
