Israeli occupation navy on Sunday morning, July 31, targeted the Palestinian fishing boats off the Al-Sudaniya shore, north of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Local sources reported that Israeli gunboats heavily fired at the Palestinian fishing boats, west of the Al-Sudaniya area, northern Gaza Strip. No injuries have been reported.

About 4000 Palestinian fishermen risk their lives every day to make a living. According to the Palestinian Fishermen’s Association in Gaza, there are some 4,000 fishermen working in Gaza’s fishing sector, who are providing for about 50,000 dependents.

Palestinians in Gaza are living under air, land, and sea blockade imposed by Israel since 2006. Israel deliberately targets Palestinian fishing boats and agricultural lands on daily basis.
