Shimon Peres is Dead – level 2

Shimon Peres is Dead – level 2

04-10-2016 07:00

Former Israeli President Shimon Peres died. He was part of many developments in Israel. People named him a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1994. He helped arrange the first peace agreement between Israel and Palestine, but the peace did not last long.

Israelis are sad because he died. They say that they lost a statesman, a diplomat and a peacemaker. Palestinians, on the other hand, are happy that he is dead. Some said that Peres has a lot of Palestinian blood on his hands. During his era, there was war with Egypt, Syria and Palestine.

Difficult words: former (ex-), development (a change, a growth), agreement (something on which people agree – say that it is OK).
