How to use bombardment in a sentence?

  1. Carl Alwmark:

    There are too many craters at this point for it just to be a coincidence, if we start finding even more of these larger craters, then you should start speculating about whether this [bombardment] could have had a profound impact on the evolution of Earth's biology.

  2. Philip Luther:

    Widespread atrocities, in particular the vicious and unrelenting aerial bombardment of civilian neighbourhoods by government forces, have made life for civilians in Aleppo increasingly unbearable, these reprehensible and continual strikes on residential areas point to a policy of deliberately and systematically targeting civilians in attacks that constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity.

  3. William Bottke:

    This means that the Earth has fewer older craters on its most stable regions not because of erosion, but because the impact rate was lower prior to 290 million years ago, the Moon is like a time capsule, helping us understand the Earth. We found that The Moon shared a similar bombardment history, which meant the answer to Earth's impact rate was staring everyone right in the face.

  4. Lenie de Jong-van Naarden:

    Many people, among them the Frank girls, slept leaning against their mother or father; everyone was dead tired. And then the tension: what would happen next? Perhaps the train would crash? There might be a bombardment; we were hoping for that. (...) A lot of people slept. It was simply a death train. People died [while] underway, and there were many dead when we arrived. I believe that we were in those cattle cars for two days and nights. After the war someone asked me: "Didn't you get anything to eat?" No, we didn't get anything, absolutely nothing.

  5. George Sabra:

    There must be a halt to the bombardment of civilians by Russian planes, and sieges of blockaded areas must be lifted, the form of the talks does not concern us, but the conditions must be appropriate for the negotiations.
