Israel bans Al Jazeera – level 1

10-05-2024 15:00

Benjamin Netanyahu is the leader of the Israeli government. His people ban Al Jazeera.

Al Jazeera is a Qatari news network. They have problems with Israel in the past. Now, people in Israel will not access Al Jazeera’s website. They will not be able to watch the news. Al Jazeera says that Israel wants to keep important information away from people. Al Jazeera plans legal action.

This is one of many problems between Israel and Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera says that Israel attacks their people and buildings, too.

Difficult words: ban (to officially stop), access (being able to get somewhere), legal action (when someone asks a court for help).

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

What conflicts have arisen between Israel and Al Jazeera and how has the news network responded to these issues?
