Palestinian fishermen forced to return to shore after Israeli gunfire


Israeli naval forces Saturday opened fire on Palestinian fishermen off the coast of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, according to local fishermen.

The fishermen told Ma’an that all fishing boats in the area were forced to return to the shore due to the gunfire. No casualties have been reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson did not have immediate information on the incident.

Two fishermen sustained moderate injuries after being targeted and shot in the same area earlier this month.

Israeli forces often say that Palestinian fishermen “deviate from the designated fishing zone” allotted by Israel to the workers, posing a “security threat.” more
