Israeli Navy attacks Palestinian fishing boats in northern Gaza – – IMEMC News

On Saturday evening, Israeli navy ships chased Palestinian fishing boats and attacked them and opened fire near coastal areas in the northern parts of the Gaza Strip.

According to media sources, navy stores fired live ammunition and flares and used water cannons to attack boats near al-Waha, as-Sudaniyya, Jabalia and Beit Lahia in northern Gaza.

The sources added that the attacks had caused material damage and forced the Palestinians to leave.

Earlier on Saturday, Israeli soldiers fired numerous automatic live ammunition and tear gas canisters at Palestinian farmers and herdsmen east of Khan Younis in the beleaguered southern part of the Gaza Strip.

On Saturday morning, Israeli navy ships fired numerous live ammunition at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

At dawn on Saturday, the Israeli army fired missiles at two areas of Gaza City and the central part of the coastal region.

The attacks are part of ongoing Israeli violations against Palestinians, especially fishermen, farmers, herders and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and have claimed dozens of casualties, including deaths, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after kidnapping the fishermen.

In March 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that resulted in the deaths of three fishermen.
