Israeli navy opens fire at Palestinian fishermen

Nov. 25, 2018 10:31 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 25, 2018 3:32 P.M.)
GAZA City (Ma'an) -- Israeli naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishermen, on Sunday, off the coast of the southern and northern besieged Gaza Strip.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli naval forces repeatedly opened heavy fire towards Palestinian fishermen in southern and northern Gaza, forcing fishing boats to sail back to shore.

No injuries were reported from the incidents.

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.

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% of fishermen living below the poverty line.
