Israeli forces open fire at Palestinian fishermen

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of Gaza City and the northern besieged Gaza Strip, on Wednesday morning.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli war boats simultaneously opened fire at Palestinian fishermen off the coast of Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip.

No injuries were reported.

Sources pointed out that shots were fired in the allowed fishing zone.

The Israeli army also regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach the buffer zone, as the authorities have not made clear the precise area of the designated zone.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave, which has been under an Israeli air, land, and sea blockade for 10 years.
