Lauded Poet Mosab Abu Toha Detained in Gaza

From a Washington Post story by Laura Wagner headlined “Mosab Abu Toha, lauded poet published in New Yorker, detained in Gaza”:

Earlier this month, the New Yorker published a first-person account from the besieged Gaza Strip by Mosab Abu Toha, a rising young Palestinian poet who had recently returned home after completing graduate studies in the United States.

“I sit in my temporary house in the Jabalia camp, waiting for a ceasefire,” he wrote. “I feel like I am in a cage. I’m being killed every day with my people. The only two things I can do are panic and breathe. There is no hope here.”
