Israel releases four Palestinian fishermen

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israel released four Palestinian fishermen, on Friday evening, who were detained earlier off the northwestern coast of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Medical sources confirmed that the four fishermen arrived to the al-Shifa Hospital injured with rubber-coated steel bullets.

The fishermen were reportedly assaulted by Israeli forces during detention.

Head of the Palestinian Fishermen Union in Gaza, Zakariya Bakr, told Ma'an earlier that the fishermen were forced to strip from their clothes and swim towards the Israeli ship in cold water, after they had surrounded the fishermen's boat and opened fire at them.

Bakr identified the fishermen as Walid Muhsen Bakr, Yusri Zakariya Bakr, and two brothers, Yasser and Tamer Suleiman Bakr.
