Israeli occupation navy attacked Palestinian fishermen in the northern areas of the besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday morning, May 31, 2023.
Palestinian local sources reported that Israeli occupation forces opened fire and stun grenades at fishing boats sailing off the Al-Sudanyia area, north of the Gaza Strip.
No injuries were reported. However, Palestinian fishermen were forced to leave the sea to find safety.
On a semi-daily basis, the Israeli navy attack and chase Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip, causing injuries and damage to their properties.
In addition, the Israeli air, land, and sea blockade imposed since 2006 banned the Palestinian fishermen in Gaza from buying items needed to repair fishing boats. These items included motors, propellers, fiberglass, and many others.
Israeli occupation forces withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2006. However, Israel still controls every aspect of the Palestinians’ lives in the besieged enclave.
