Protests in Gaza – level 1

10-04-2019 15:00

This news is from Gaza. In March 2018, Palestinians start to protest. They call the protest the Great March of Return. Palestinians protest every week. They want their land back. They say that Israel has taken their land.

One year later, there is a big protest. Forty thousand people protest in March 2019.

In one year of the protests, Israeli police kill 250 Palestinians.

Difficult words: has taken (present perfect of ‘take’; it happened already and it is done).

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