Ceasefire in Palestine – level 1

19-11-2019 07:00

Israel kills an Islamic Jihad military leader and his wife on Tuesday.

This starts many military attacks in Gaza. The  Islamic Jihad shoots rockets at Israel.  Israel stops these rockets. It starts to attack Gaza from the air. These attacks last two days.  They kill and hurt many people.

Hamas is  the terrorist group which controls Gaza. Hamas  is very angry. It says that Israel is very violent.

Now the fights stop. The Islamic Jihad and Israel agree to a ceasefire. This  is because  of  a protest in Gaza. The Islamic Jihad says that it wants protests without any fights . Israel agrees with the Islamic Jihad .

Difficult words: control (to have power over a place or people), violent (using force to hurt or kill somebody), ceasefire (a situation when two sides agree that they stop fighting for some time).

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