Conjoined Twins Born in Palestine – level 1

09-11-2017 07:00

In the Gaza Strip, Palestine, special twins are born at a hospital. They are conjoined twins. The middle of their bodies is the same. They have two heads and two pairs of lungs.

The hospital cannot do a separation surgery. Hospitals in the USA and Saudi Arabia can do the surgery.

Many conjoined twins die after one day. However, these twin girls are still alive. They are eating.

Difficult words: conjoined twins (twins whose bodies are together), separation surgery (when doctors cut the twins to make two normal bodies).

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