Islamic State oil goes to Turkey – level 1

01-12-2015 07:00

Russia fights in Syria. Russian jets fly in the sky there. The jets see tank trucks. These tank trucks go from the Islamic State to Turkey.

Vladimir Putin talks about this. He is at a press conference with the French President Francois Hollande. Putin says that Turkey should investigate this.

Difficult words: jet (a fast warplane), tank truck (a big truck which moves oil), press conference (an event when leaders talk and people from the media listen), investigate (get more information about).

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

What do you think about this situation with Turkey?
