Israeli Naval Forces Open Fire at Fishermen of Northern Gaza Coast

Israeli naval forces opened fire on Palestinian fishermen off the coast of the Northern Gaza Strip Friday morning, media sources said. Head of the Gazan fishermen union Zakariya Bakr told Ma’an news agency that the Israeli naval boats opened machine gun fire at fishing boats while they were sailing three nautical miles into the sea, inside the boundaries of the six nautical mile limit set by Israel. No injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports. The Israeli army regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds, and farmers along the border areas if they approach Israel’s unilaterally declared “buffer zone,” which lies on both the land and sea sides of Gaza.

The practice has in effect destroyed much of the agricultural and fishing sector of the blockaded coastal enclave.

Gazan fishermen, whose numbers are estimated to be around 4,000, have suffered from the near decade-long siege of the Gaza Strip, which limits their incursions to just six nautical miles into the sea in accordance with the ceasefire agreement signed with Palestinian factions in 2014.
