Israeli warships open fire on Gaza shores

July 17, 2009 10:12 A.M. (Updated: July 18, 2009 9:44 A.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – Israeli warships opened fire on Gazan shores Friday morning, causing no damage or injuries, but scaring fishermen away from the coast.

Fire from the naval ships permanently patrolling the Gaza coast since Israel’s war on the area in December and January was heard for kilometers around the shore near Gaza City, locals reported. Fire from the ships was also heard Thursday night, when shores were empty.

On Friday fishermen quickly evacuated the area, and will likely lose a day’s fishing.

The head of Ambulance and Emergency Services within the Strip's Health Ministry, Dr Muawiyah Hassanein, confirmed that no injuries were reported.
