Gaza fishermen come under fire from Israeli navy


GAZA, Wednesday, May 6, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli navy boats opened fire at Palestinian fishermen sailing in the northern Gaza shore forcing them to return to the port, said WAFA correspondent.

He said the navy opened live fire and water hoses at the fishermen who were sailing three nautical miles off shore causing damage to at least one boat.

While fishing is vital for thousands of Palestinian households, Israel restricts their work to a small area and often pursues them even inside this area and push them back to shore.
