Israeli occupation naval forces attack fishing boats in Gaza

August 04, 2022

Israeli occupation navy ships opened fire, on Wednesday evening, at Palestinian fishing boats near the shores of the northern parts of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the Israeli occupation navy fired many live rounds and gas bombs at the fishing boats in the Sudaniyya and Al-Waha areas, in addition to Jabalia and Beit Lahia.

They added that the attacks caused damage but did not lead to casualties and forced the fishermen to leave without being able to fish to provide for their families.

The attacks are part of constant Israeli occupation violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.
