GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained six fishermen off the coast of the Gaza Strip on Wednesday night, a local official said.

Mahfouz al-Kabariti, Chairman of the Palestinian Association for Fishing and Marine Sports, said in a statement that Israeli troops detained six fishermen from three boats near Beit Lahiya.

He identified those detained as Hatem Abu Wardeh, Fadel Abu Wardeh, Mahmud Abu Wardeh, Mohamad Khaleh, Noman al-Saksik, and Abed Sobhi Saad Allah.

The incident was Israel's 14th attack on fishermen over the last month, Kabariti said.

An Israeli military spokesman did not return a call seeking comment.
