Jerusalem explosions – level 2

29-11-2022 07:00

Last week, two bombs exploded in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

One bomb exploded at a bus station near the exit of the city, and the second bomb exploded 30 minutes later in an urban area in the east of the city. According to police, one of the bombs contained nails. One person died and several others were hurt in the attacks.

After several attacks, the Israeli military fought with militants, which brought more conflicts. Currently, former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is creating a new government, and all parties agreed that it was necessary to stop such attacks.

Difficult words: urban (an area in a town or city), militant (a person who fights to achieve something), party (an official group).

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