Israeli occupation warships opened fire Wednesday, December 28, 2022, towards Palestinian fishermen offshore Gaza.
Local Palestinian sources reported that the occupation warships opened fire with machine guns at the small fishing boats of the fishermen working offshore the Rafah Sea in the southern Gaza Strip.
It’s noteworthy that the Israeli occupation forces deliberately target Palestinian fishermen daily and prevent them from their livelihood.
Israeli occupation navy has carried out 291 attacks against Palestinian fishermen, wounding 16 among them three children, kidnapping 45 fishers including seven children, and expropriating 14 fishing boats since the beginning of 2022, according to Al Mezan Center For Human Rights.
It is worth mentioning that Israeli occupation authorities still prohibit the entry of essential fishing materials and supplies to the besieged enclave as part of their suffocating siege imposed on Gaza since 2007.
