Russia in Syria - level 1
There is war in Syria. Russia gets involved. Russian planes drop bombs. They bomb eight Islamic State targets.
Russia says that Syrian people are safe. It says it hits only Islamic State targets. However, the situation is complicated. Russia says one thing, and the West says another. The West says that 36 people died because of Russia.
Difficult words: get involved (to start to do something), drop (to put), target (something which you want to hit).
