GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities released, on Saturday evening, two Palestinian fishermen, who were detained earlier off the coast of the northern besieged Gaza Strip.

Nizar Ayyash, Head of the Fishermen Union in Gaza, told Ma'an that Israeli authorities released two Palestinian fishermen, who were identified as brothers Karim and Muhammad Wahid Abu Hassan, residents from Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza.

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