Israeli navy target Palestinian fishermen in Rafah

RAFAH, Sunday, March 27, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli navy today targeted Palestinian fishermen in the sea of the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip.

WAFA correspondent said that the Israeli navy opened fire at the fishermen, forcing them to leave the area.

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

Despite the signed agreements between Palestinians and Israel, which allow fishermen to go 12 nautical miles inside the Mediterranean Sea, Israeli navy targets Gaza fishermen almost daily and does not allow them to go further than three nautical miles, which the fishermen say is not enough to catch fish.
