Israel detains 3 fishermen off Gaza coast

June 8, 2014 12:23 P.M. (Updated: June 9, 2014 12:46 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli gunboats stopped three fishermen off the coast of the northern Gaza Strip Saturday evening and detained them.

Palestinian sources told Ma'an that Israeli authorities took the three and their fishing boat to an unidentified destination.

The incident reportedly occurred off the coast of al-Sudaniya, where Israeli forces have shot two fishermen, killing one, in the last month.

Israeli naval forces often stop or shoot at Palestinian fishermen if they stray more than a few miles from the shore.
