Protests in Gaza – level 2

10-04-2019 15:00

More than 40,000 people protested along the Israel–Gaza border on Saturday March 31st. They marked the anniversary of the Great March of Return protest.

Since March 2018, there were protests at the border every week. The Palestinians demand their land which they say Israel took from them. In the year of protests, the Israeli police killed more than 250 Palestinians.

Difficult words: mark (remember), anniversary (the date when something happened a year/years ago), demand (want, ask for).

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