Israeli warships fire at Gazan fishermen

July 20, 2008 10:34 A.M. (Updated: July 20, 2008 10:34 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Israeli warships opened fire at Gazan fishermen for three hours on Sunday morning.

Security sources in the Hamas de facto government in the Gaza Strip told Ma'an that Israeli warships fired a number of anti-tank missiles at fishermen's boats and opened fire heavily at them while fishing in the Sudaniyya area north of Gaza City and Ash-Shati camp west of Gaza City. The shots were fired between 3 and 6 in the morning.

Sources explained that the missiles horrified fishermen and damaged several boats. No injuries have been reported.

There has been a ceasefire in place in Gaza between Israel and Palestinian factions for one month, however the ceasefire has been breached repeatedly by Israeli forces. Palestinian factions, on the other hand, have succeeded in preventing the launch of homemade projectiles towards Israeli towns after minor factions tried a few time to launch homemade projectiles.

There have been 7 projectiles and one morter shell launched from Gaza that Hamas was unable to prevent. Israel used those minor incidents as a pretext to close Gaza crossing points.
