Israel attacks Gaza – level 1

07-01-2022 07:00

Hamas is a militant group in Gaza. It fights with Israel.

There is a war between Israel and Hamas in May 2021. The war is 11 days long. No conflict starts since that time.
Then, Gaza militants fire two rockets on Saturday. The rockets fall in the Mediterranean Sea. It happens near central Israel. Nobody knows why Gaza fires the rockets. Often, Gaza tests rockets near the sea.

Israel fires two rockets on Sunday. The rockets destroy a rocket factory in Gaza.
Now, the situation in the area is not good. Militants are ready to fight.

Israel keeps a Palestinian man in prison. The man does not eat for more than 130 days. Militants say that they will attack Israel if the man is not free.

Difficult words: militant group (a group of people who are very active and aggressive, and they want to make some changes in a country), conflict (a serious situation when two people or countries do not agree with each other).

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