Israeli navy opens fire at fishermen in northern Gaza

Sept. 12, 2018 11:31 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 12, 2018 3:24 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli naval forces opened fire on a number of Palestinian fishing boats off the northern coast of the besieged Gaza Strip, on Wednesday morning.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli naval boats opened fire at fishing boats in northern Gaza, forcing Palestinian fishermen to sail back to shore.

No injuries were reported from the incident.

The Israeli army regularly detains and opens fire on unarmed Palestinian fishermen, shepherds and farmers along the border areas if they approach the unilaterally declared buffer zone.

Israeli human rights group B'Tselem confirmed that Israel's Gaza closure and "harassment of fishermen" have been "destroying Gaza's fishing sector," with 95 percent of fishermen living below the poverty line.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces opened fire at a group of Palestinian youths near the return camps east of Gaza City. No injuries were reported.
