GAZA, Monday, November 21, 2022 (WAFA) – The Israeli navy Monday evening targeted fishermen offshore al-Waha and al-Sudaniya areas in the northern besieged Gaza Strip, according to WAFA correspondent.

He said that the Israeli navy intercepted and opened machine gunfire, tear gas and water hoses towards fishing boats sailing offshore the areas, forcing them for safety.

Two million Palestinians live the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to a punishing and crippling Israeli blockade for 12 years and repeated onslaughts that have heavily damaged much of the enclave’s infrastructure.

Gaza’s 2-million population remains under “remote control” occupation and a strict siege, which has destroyed the local economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, plunged them into unprecedented rates of unemployment and poverty, and cut off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the wider world.

Gaza remains occupied territory, having no control over its borders, territorial waters or airspace. Meanwhile, Israel upholds very few of its responsibilities as the occupying power, failing to provide for the basic needs of Palestinian civilians living in the territory.

Every two in three Palestinians in Gaza is a refugee from lands inside what is now Israel. That government forbids them from exercising their right to return as enshrined in international law because they are not Jews.
