Bombs in a city - level 2
A Syrian plane dropped bombs on a residential area near Damascus. There was a big explosion.
We don't know how many people died. There is a video that shows the destroyed buildings and scared people. Everything was covered in dust.
It is not sure whether or not they wanted to drop the bomb on people's homes but the video will put more pressure on the western governments to do something about it. The Syrian president may be using bombs against his own people and might use chemical weapons as well.
Interesting words: residential (where people live), cover (be over something).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
