Missile System in South Korea – level 2

19-09-2017 07:00

In South Korea, the military is stationing weapons near where people live, and they are upset and protesting. The weapons are four rocket launchers which are to protect the country from possible missile attacks.

People are worried about the powerful radar that works with the rocket launchers, as they think that it will bring health hazards. They also worry that North Korea will want to attack them. Protesters and police have been fighting and dozens of people have been hurt.

Difficult words: station (set in place), health hazard (a health danger), dozens (many).

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