Chemical attack in Syria - level 2
There was probably a chemical attack in eastern Damascus. Some people filmed the aftermath.
The video is quite shocking. It shows bodies of killed people and how they’ve been lying between the rubble.
Remains of a missile were found. It probably carried the poison gas. Experts in chemicals agreed that there was a chemical attack but they don't know what poison was used.
We don't know exactly how many people died. It could be hundreds or even thousands.
Difficult words: aftermath (situation after the attack), rubble (pieces of buildings), remains (parts), poison gas (gas that can kill you).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
