White Helmets in Syria – level 3

02-03-2018 15:00

Ghouta is a suburb to the east of Damascus, Syria’s capital, and heavy bombardment has been happening there with people reporting more than 500 civilian deaths in recent shelling.

The Syrian Civil Defence released a video of White Helmet members rushing in to find survivors after a bombing in the eastern part of Ghouta. This attack occurred as the UN Security Council worked on a ceasefire resolution with people involved in the war in Syria.

Difficult words: suburb (an area of a city), civilian (a person who is not a soldier or in the military), shelling (bombing), White Helmet (a person who helps find survivors or dead people after bombings in Syria), ceasefire resolution (when groups in a war or a battle agree to stop fighting for a small amount of time).
