Israeli naval forces opened fire Tuesday morning towards Palestinian fishing boats off  the coast of Khanyounis in southern Gaza.

Dozens of Palestinian boats were targeted but no injuries were reported, according to ALRAY correspondent.

Israeli forces intend to practise unfair measures against Gaza fishermen on a daily basis including  arrests and reduction of the fishing zone.
