Church is attacked in Israel – level 2

22-06-2015 07:00

In Israel, somebody set the “Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes” on fire. Christians believe that Jesus performed the miracle of feeding 5,000 people here.

The fire completely destroyed the internal parts of the building. People also found hateful graffiti on one of the walls. One man told media that he heard something and ran from his room. He saw that parts of the main entrance were burnt and he could smell benzine.

People are going to re-build this place, and perhaps it will look even better.

Difficult words: miracle (something amazing and god-like), entrance (an area where you enter; a door).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
