Israeli navy attacks Palestinian boats off Gaza shore

Days of Palestine - Gaza

Israeli navy Wednesday morning attacked Palestinian fishing boats sailing offshore the city of Gaza, according to local sources.

The sources said that the occupation's military boats opened fire and opened water cannons at the fishermen's boats about six nautical miles off the fishermen's port, west of Gaza City, causing damage to at least one boat.

Two million Palestinians live in the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 12 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of the enclave’s infrastructure.

The occupation navy deliberately attacks the fishermen in the Gaza Sea and prevents them from practicing the profession of fishing.
