Destroyed Aleppo – level 2

Destroyed Aleppo – level 2

20-12-2016 07:00

A ceasefire agreement in Aleppo was reached last Tuesday, so the bombing in the Syrian city stopped. However, the fighting continued the very next day.

A drone filmed the smoke-filled streets of the city. The video is a picture of destruction. Buildings are damaged, there are no people in the streets, and everything is grey and depressing.

Difficult words: ceasefire (a situation of not fighting for some time), agreement (if you reach an agreement with somebody, you are both OK with doing something), depressing (making you very sad).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
