Syrian baby in Israel - level 2

Syrian baby in Israel - level 2

11-11-2013 06:00

Hundreds of Syrians have been escaping the country recently because of its civil war. Some, who are wounded, go to Israel and seek medical care.

An Israeli hospital, however, received a Syrian who was not hurt. It was a 20-year-old pregnant woman. She was transferred to Israel by the army because there was no local hospital for her.

The hospital in Israel received her and the doctors helped. Everything was fine and the woman gave birth to a little boy. He is the first Syrian baby to be born in Israel.

Difficult words: wounded (hurt), seek (look for), pregnant (with a baby inside her).
