Israeli navy attacks Palestinian fishermen’s boats off Gaza coast


GAZA, Saturday, March 7, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli navy today attacked Palestinian fishermen’s boats off the northern Gaza coast, reported WAFA correspondent, causing damage but no injuries.

The navy opened fire and water hoses at the boats that were sailing only three nautical miles off the coast and forced them to return to shore. One boat was damaged, said WAFA correspondent.

Israel imposes a strict blockade on the Gaza Strip for the last 14 years, including occasionally not allowing fishing in Gaza waters, a main source of livelihood for the two million population of the beleaguered coastal enclave.
