There is war in Syria. A lot of people leave Syria because of it. Some people are hurt. They go to Israel. They look for a hospital. Hospitals can help these people.

One hospital has a patient. She is a woman. She is from Syria but she is not hurt. She is 20 years old and she is pregnant. Doctors help her.

The woman is a mother now. She has a boy. The boy is special. He is Syrian and he was born in Israel. This is not normal. He is the first.

Difficult words: hurt (have problems with the body), patient (person in a hospital), pregnant (she has a baby inside her body).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
