Israel was blanketed by the worst sandstorm in four years.

Air pollutions levels on Monday were 40 times higher than on a typical day, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported, citing the Environment Ministry.

The high winds, dust and sand came from Egypt into Israel as a result of a low pressure system over the Mediterranean Sea.

Hazy conditions improved by Monday night.
