Gaza – Ma’an – Israeli warships confiscated the fishing vessel of a Gazan fisherman off the coast in of the northern Strip on Wednesday and towed the boat to an unknown location, according to a local organization.

Sources at the fishermens union said the boat of the Zaki Abu Odeh family was confiscated from within the three nautical mile fishing limit in the northern Strip. No one on board was notified as to the reason for the seizure or told where the boat was being taken, they said.

Earlier in the day Israeli gunships opened fire on a cluster of fishing boats in the same area, according to purported witnesses. No injuries were reported but fishermen said they fled the scene in fear more shots would be fired.

Calls to the Israeli military seeking comment were not returned by press time.
