Israel reduces allowed fishing zone in Gaza

Oct. 6, 2018 4:48 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 7, 2018 2:40 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel decided, on Saturday, to temporarily reduce to allowed fishing zone off the coast of the besieged Gaza Strip for 6 days.

Hebrew-language news sites reported that Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman decided to reduce the nautical zone allowed for Gaza fishermen in response to Friday's protests alongside the eastern borders of Gaza, during which three Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces.

Lieberman did not specify the distance to which the allowed fishing zone would be reduced.

The Israeli minister pledged more strict procedure if "order disruption and violence" continues at the borders.

Is September, Israel had threatened with the possible reduction of the permitted fishing zone to only three nautical miles from the current six depending on if the on-going protests continue.

Earlier Saturday, Israeli naval forces had also detained two Gazan fishermen off the coast of northern Gaza City.
