Israeli navy opens fire at Palestinian fishermen in Khan Younis

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

Witnesses reported that Israeli naval boats opened fire targeting a group of Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

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 percent of fishermen living below the poverty line.
