Yemen is under attack - level 2
Saudi Arabian fighter jets are attacking airports across Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest country.
A black cloud of smoke came from the main airport in Yemen’s capital city. One plane was completely in flames and later local fire trucks doused it with water.
Saudi Arabia first attacked Yemen in March, but now it is thinking about a cease-fire in some areas. This would allow humanitarian aid.
Difficult words: douse (to pour – to put water on something), cease-fire (stopping the fighting for some time), aid (help).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
