Israeli Navy Opens Fire at Gazan Fisherman

Gaza, MINA – The Israeli occupation navy on Wednesday morning opened machinegun fire at Palestinian fishermen and their boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip, Palinfo reported.

Although the Israeli army extended the permitted fishing areas off the shores of Gaza up to 15 nautical miles and deployed buoys as marks for fishermen, but its naval forces opened fire once again at Palestinian fishermen during their work within 4 nautical miles off the coast of Beit Lahia, north of Gaza.

Luckily, no one was hurt in the wanton shooting attack. According to the fishermen committees, several Israeli gunboats were seen 12 nautical miles away from the shore of Wadi Gaza.(T/R04/P2)
