Israeli navy forces open fire at Gaza fishermen

Oct. 13, 2015 8:34 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 13, 2015 8:34 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of Gaza on Tuesday, witnesses said.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

An Israeli army spokesperson said that three vessels deviated from the designated fishing zone and Israeli forces fired warning shots, with the boats returning.

Palestinian fishermen face daily risks in order to make a living, including routine harassment from Israeli naval forces, confiscation of boats and materials, detention, and potentially death.

At least three Palestinian fishermen have been shot dead by Israeli forces since last September.

Israeli forces often allege that fishermen deviate from the designated fishing zone and pose a security threat.
