Israeli breaks ceasfire again - warship opens fire at Gaza fishermen

An Israeli warship opened fire Sunday morning at Palestinian fishermen off the coast of Gaza City's Al-Shati refugee camp, the speaker of the Union of Gaza Fishermen said.

Nizar Ayyash told Ma'an that Israeli gunboats "have been firing at fishermen every day since the ceasefire agreement was signed."

He also said that Israeli naval forces have detained six Palestinian fishermen since the ceasefire agreement in late August that brought an end to a more than 50 day offensive that left over 2,100 dead.

Under the terms of the ceasefire, Israel agreed to expand the fishing zone off the coast of Gaza open to Palestinian fishermen from its previous three nautical miles. more
