Official: Navy fires on Palestinian fishing boats

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — Israeli gunboats opened fire on Friday evening toward Palestinian fishing boats at sea near Beit Lahiya off the coast of northern Gaza; no injuries were reported.

Mahmud Al-Asi, head of the Tawfiq organization for fishermen, said the gunboats open fire regularly toward the fishing boats, forcing fishermen to head back to shore.

The fishermen have suffered a reduction in earnings due to the navy, he added.
