Destroyed Gaza Bookstore Receives Donations

Books2Door, an online children's bookstore in the U.K., has donated 1,000 books to help restock Samir Mansour Bookstore in Gaza, destroyed by Israeli airstrikes in May. The store was the largest in Gaza, served as a community center in the city, and was open for 21 years prior to being destroyed. A GoFundMe campaign has raised more than $200,000 to help rebuild the bookstore.
