Israeli occupation navy opens fire at Gazan fishermen

May 11, 2022

GAZA STRIP– Israeli occupation forces opened fire, today, Wednesday, at Palestinian fishermen and farmers in the Gaza Strip, local sources reported.

The Israeli occupation navy targeted Palestinian fishermen and their fishing boats sailing off the Al-Sudaniya area, northwest of Gaza city, and opened water hoses at them, forcing them to return to shore, the sources added.

A large number of Gazans rely on fishing to put food on the table in light of the tight decade-old blockade imposed by apartheid Israel on the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation forces also regularly open fire at Gaza farmers working on their lands bordering the fence between Gaza and southern occupied Palestine.
