Israeli navy injures Gaza fisherman, arrests two

Days of Palestine -

A Palestinian fisherman was injured and two others arrested by the Israeli occupation navy while sailing off Gaza shore on Wednesday morning.

The PIC reporter said that the Israeli navy chased Palestinian fishing boats off northern Gaza shore and opened fire at them.

He added that the fisherman Mohammed Abu Ryala was injured in the attack and transferred to a Gaza hospital for treatment, while the detainees Hazem and Khaled Abu Ryala were taken by the Israeli navy to an undeclared destination.

The PIC reporter confirmed that the attack took place within the permitted fishing zone.

Targeting Palestinian fishermen in Gaza sea on a daily basis is a crime added to a long series of Israeli crimes committed against the Gaza Strip since the signing of the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Palestinian resistance groups in August 2014 under the auspices of Egypt.

The attack came only one day after Israel decided to reduce Gaza's fishing zone to 6 nautical miles in violation of newly reached understandings.
