GAZA, Sunday, June 26, 2022 (WAFA) - Israeli navy opened its machine gun fire toward Palestinian fishing boats sailing in Gaza waters, according to sources.
Israeli navy forces opened gunfire and unleashed waste water cannons on Palestinian fishermen’s boats sailing in Gaza waters. No injuries were reported.
The fishermen were forced to return back to shore for fear of being detained, injured, or killed.
Israeli forces constantly harass fishermen and farmers at border areas and prevent them from earning a living.
Israel has imposed a tightened blockade since 2007 after Hamas won the democratic legislative elections and took over power in the strip.
