American Embassy in Jerusalem – level 3

18-05-2018 15:00

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

While Israelis supported the move, and some of them put up banners like ’God Bless President Donald Trump’, there were violent clashes with Palestinians along the Gaza border.

At least 58 Palestinians died and thousands were injured during the ceremony, making it the deadliest and most violent day since the 2014 Gaza war.

Difficult words: clash (fight), spark (start, provoke).
