Witnesses: Israeli navy fires at Gaza fishing boats

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel's navy opened fire at Palestinian fishermen off the northern coast of Gaza on Tuesday, witnesses said.

Israeli ships fired several shells at the boats, who were fishing near Gaza City, causing material damage.

No injuries were reported.

On Monday, Israeli naval forces confiscated three fishing boats, and a day earlier detained three men swimming in what was deemed a "suspicious" area.

In May, the Israeli government re-extended Gaza's fishing zone to six miles, after reducing it in March following a rocket attack from the coastal territory. more
