Iran attacks Israel – level 1

16-04-2024 07:00

On Saturday night, Iran attacks Israel. Iran uses many drones and rockets.

Iran does this because Israel attacks its office in Damascus before. Israel expects the attack. Israeli soldiers are ready. Other countries help them, for example, the US, UK and Jordan. They destroy the drones and rockets. Nobody is hurt. Jordan is in an emergency now. Another attack may happen.

The situation in the Middle East is already serious before the attack. The attack makes the area even more unsafe. People worry that things will get worse.

Difficult words: expect (to think or believe that something will happen), destroy (to damage something very badly), unsafe (not safe).

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

What are some possible motives behind Iran's attack on Israel and how does this affect the current situation in the Middle East?
