Af.M | DOP -

Israeli occupation navy excessively fired Monday,19 September 2022 live bullets and pump water toward Palestinian fishing boats near  Beit Lahia shore, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip. 

Local media sources reported that the Israeli navy fired live bullets and pump water toward Palestinian fishing boats, forcing them to return to the shore without being able to fish to provide for their families.

Israeli occupation continues its illegal procedures against Palestinian fishers, which are part of Israel’s illegal blockade that amounts to a prohibited collective punishment under international law.

Israeli occupation carried out 291 attacks against Palestinian fishermen, wounding 16 among them three children, abducting 45 fishers including seven children, and confiscating 14 fishing boats since the beginning of 2022, according to Al Mezan Center For Human Rights.
