Days of Palestine – Gaza

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnaped on Saturday morning two Palestinian citizens from a border area in the east of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza.

According to local sources, Israeli soldiers at military posts in the east of Deir al-Balah rounded up two citizens during their presence near the border fence. The identities of the detainees are still unknown.

On Friday, the IOF kidnaped three Gazans in the east of Khan Yunis, south of Gaza.

Most Gazans who attempt to enter 1948 occupied Palestine are aged between 17 and 25, the category hardest hit by the difficult economic conditions and the blockade.

Meanwhile, The Israeli navy detained this morning six Palestinian fishermen while at sea in the north of the Gaza Strip, local sources.

They said the navy first detained four fishermen in al-Waha region and then two more west of Gaza port after seizing and impounding their fishing boats.

Fishing is the main source of income and living for thousands of Gazans.

The impoverished Gaza Strip has been under constant Israeli military siege and blockade since 2005 and the fishing area is heavily restricted to only three nautical miles.
