There is an attack in Syria. It is probably a chemical attack. Some people film it.

The video is very sad. It shows dead people. The people are lying between destroyed buildings.

People find a missile. The missile brings the chemicals. Experts say that this missile is a chemical attack. But they don't know the type of poison.

Many people died in the attack. But we don't know how many. It can be hundreds or even thousands.

Difficult words: destroyed (broken), missile (rocket), poison (something that can kill you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
