American Embassy in Jerusalem – level 2

18-05-2018 15:00

Ivanka Trump is the daughter of the American President Donald Trump. She officially opened the new US embassy in the Israeli capital of Jerusalem.

Israelis support the new embassy, and some even put up banners saying ’God Bless President Donald Trump’.

However, because of the opening, Palestinians along the Gaza border started fighting. At least 58 Palestinians died and thousands were injured. This was the deadliest day since the 2014 Gaza war.

Difficult words: embassy (a country’s offices in another country), support (think that it is a good thing).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
