Israeli occupation navy attacks Palestinian fishing boats in Gaza

June 21, 2022

Israeli occupation naval forces attacked, on Monday evening, Palestinian fishing boats near the western area of the Rafah sea shore, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Fishermen’s Syndicate in Gaza said the occupation's navy ships fired a barrage of live rounds at the fishing boats sailing well within the Israeli occupation authorities-enforced restricted fishing zone.

Earlier Monday, Israeli occupation soldiers abducted two Palestinians east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Fishing is one of the most essential professions on which Gaza residents rely to provide for their families.
