Israeli forces open fire at fishermen, raze lands in Gaza

July 3, 2018 1:45 P.M. (Updated: July 3, 2018 3:32 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Several Israeli military vehicles raided into eastern Gaza City in the besieged Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

A Ma’an reporter said that four Israeli bulldozers escorted by troops raided Gaza City, razed and leveled lands and repaired the border fence in the southeastern area.

Meanwhile, Israeli naval forces opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats as they were working off the coast of the central and northern Gaza Strip.

No injuries were reported.

The Israeli army regularly detains and opens fire at unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the unilaterally declared buffer zone.

Israeli human rights group B’Tselem recently concluded that Israel’s Gaza closure and “harassment of fishermen” have been “destroying Gaza’s fishing sector,” with 95 percent of fishermen living below the poverty line.

The Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees (UAWC) issued an annual report for 2017 detailing Israeli attacks against Palestinian fishermen in the besieged Gaza Strip, highlighting that “these attacks deny fishermen from practicing their fishing work and accessing their livelihood resources.”
