Jerusalem explosions – level 1

29-11-2022 07:00

Two bombs explode at bus stops in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

The bombs kill one person. Several other people are hurt. The bombs are in bags. Nails are in one of the bombs. Police say that Palestinian militants maybe do the attacks.

Many attacks happen in the area in the past. The government tries to stop them. Now, the former prime minister is making a new government. The new government wants to stop the attacks. A spokesman for a Palestinian militant group praises the attacks.

Difficult words: militant (a person who fights for changes in the country), prime minister (the leader of a government), praise (to say that something is good or great).

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