GAZA, Monday, February 22, 2021 (WAFA) – An Israeli navy boat today fired two shells at a Palestinian fishing boat as it was sailing six nautical miles off the Gaza shore, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said that the fishermen, who were not hurt, returned to shore in fear of getting shot.

A large number of Gazans rely on fishing for daily living in light of the tight 14-year-long blockade imposed by Israel on the Gaza Strip.
