Israeli naval forces open fire at Gazan fishermen

Sept. 5, 2018 10:59 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 5, 2018 12:28 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli naval forces opened fire, on Wednesday morning, at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the southern besieged Gaza Strip.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishermen as they were working off the coast of Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip.

Sources added that no injuries were reported.

Several human rights groups reported that since the beginning of 2018, the Israeli navy has carried out more than 230 attacks against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip, including shootings, detentions and confiscation of boats.

Israeli human rights group B'Tselem confirmed 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.
