Palestinians open Sheikh Jarrah bookshop in tribute to demolished Gaza store

Residents in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood of Jerusalem opened a bookshop on Wednesday in honour of the one demolished by Israeli air strikes in Gaza earlier this month.

The Samir Mansour bookshop was built 21 years ago and was known for being Gaza’s largest. Two storeys tall, it was home to tens of thousands of books.

On 18 May, the store - along with most of its books - was destroyed by Israeli air strikes.

Posts on the bookshop’s Instagram page showed the damage. Books could be seen to be strewn across the ground underneath the rubble.
