Fighter jet crash - level 2
An army fighter jet dropped a bomb on a Syrian town and then the jet crashed. The crash injured many people and it killed at least 27 people because the jet crashed into a busy market place. Most of these people were civilians.
The town is located in the rural Idlib Province, and it fell to a coalition of Islamist rebels in May. The fighting is bad there, as President Bashar al Assad is trying to bring the area under his control.
Difficult words: civilian (not a soldier), rural (in the countryside).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
