The ninth day of the "Al-Aqsa Flood" 2,384 martyrs in Gaza

Gaza - As Operation “Al-Aqsa Flood” - which was launched by the Palestinian resistance and led to the killing of 1,300 Israelis - enters its ninth day, the violent Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip continues, leaving more than 2,384 martyrs and more than 10,150 injured, most of whom are women and children.

UN official warns that Palestinians are being subjected to "mass ethnic cleansing"

The United Nations rapporteur on human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Francesca Albanese, warned that Palestinians are exposed to a “grave risk of mass ethnic cleansing.”

The independent UN rapporteur said, in a statement, “There is a grave danger that what we are witnessing may be a repetition of the 1948 catastrophe and the 1967 setback, but on a larger scale. The international community must do everything to prevent this from happening again.

Amnesty International: Israel uses white phosphorus in Gaza

Amnesty International confirmed that Israel used white phosphorus bombs in its bombing of the Gaza Strip, which was crowded with civilians.

The organization said, in a statement today, Sunday, that our Crisis Evidence Laboratory collected evidence documenting the use of white phosphorus shells by Israeli military units in their bombing of the Gaza Strip.

It added that verified videos and photos show M825 and M825A1 artillery shells, which are designated D528, which is the US Department of Defense Identification Code (DODIC) for white phosphorus-based shells.

For the ninth day in a row, the Israeli occupation army continues to target the Gaza Strip, which has been besieged since 2006, with intense air strikes that destroyed entire neighborhoods and left thousands of martyrs and wounded among Palestinian civilians.

The German Book Festival cancels an awards ceremony for a Palestinian writer, What is the story?

The Frankfurt Book Fair canceled an awards ceremony that was scheduled to honor a Palestinian writer. The concert organizers explained that the cancellation was due to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict that has been ongoing for a week.

The Frankfurt Book Fair, one of the largest global gatherings of the publishing industry, announced the cancellation of the awards ceremony that was scheduled to honor the novel “A Small Detail” by Palestinian writer Adnia Shibli.

Litprom, the German literary association responsible for organizing the award, said that the cancellation of the ceremony came due to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict that has been ongoing for more than a week.

“A Simple Detail,” originally written in Arabic and translated into German in 2022, tells the tragic true story of the rape and murder of a Palestinian Bedouin girl in 1949 by Israeli soldiers, as revealed by its German publisher, Berenberg Verlag.

A previous English translation of the novel received nominations for the National Book Award in 2020 and the International Booker Prize in 2021.

The ceremony was designed to celebrate Shibli's novel winning the 2023 LiBeraturpreis, the German literature award given annually to an author from Africa, Asia, Latin America or the Arab world at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Criticism of Shabelle
Controversy over the novel erupted in Germany earlier this year, when a jury member, Ulrich Knoller, resigned in protest against the decision to award the literature prize to Shibli's work.

A critic of the left-wing German newspaper Die Tageszeitung also recently sparked controversy, accusing the book of portraying “the State of Israel as a killing machine,” while other German critics praised the novel.

The conflict between Israel and the Palestinian resistance has amplified existing divisions within German cultural institutions regarding support for Israel, especially with the continuing crimes and bombing of residential areas by the Israeli army.

The Frankfurt Book Fair is scheduled to run from October 18 to 22, and Litprom is currently exploring alternative formats and settings for the award ceremony after the conclusion of the fair.
