Powerfull Sandstorm hits Middle East, killing at least twelve (Video)

An unseasonal dust storm has swept through the Middle East, blanketing Beirut and Damascus, killing at least twelve and hospitalizing hundreds in Lebanon, and halting airstrikes in neighboring Syria where five people have reportedly died due to the freak weather.

 

The deadly sandstorm is so large it can be seen from space.

 

NASA has shared the above image of the raging dust and sand, which caused breathing problems, reduced visibility in parts of Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Israel and Iraq and even forced school closures,reported RT.
