Israeli Naval Boats Open Fire on Palestinian Fishermen Offshore Gaza

Gaza, June 24 (QNA) – Israeli naval boats opened fire Tuesday on Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of As-Sudaniya to the northwest of Gaza, according to (WAFA) News Agency.

Israeli naval boats opened gunfire on several Palestinian fishing boats fishing within the six nautical miles allowed fishing zone, forcing fishermen to return to the shore. No injuries were reported among them.

Israel has restricted the fishing zone designated for the Palestinians to three nautical miles, violating an Egyptian–brokered cease fire agreement signed in November 2012 stipulating that Israel increase the fishing zone to six nautical miles, which reduced fishermen’s intake, WAFA said. (QNA)
