Israeli navy gunboats fire at Palestinian fishing boats

GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli navy gunboats opened heavy machinegun fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the southern Gaza Strip coast of Khan Younis on Saturday morning.

Nizar Ayyash, the head of the Palestinian fishing syndicate, told the PIC reporter that the Israeli gunboats opened heavy fire at the fishing boats while working in the permissible area.

He said that gunboats fire at Palestinian fishermen on daily basis even if they were fishing in the three nautical miles radius allowed by the Israeli occupation authorities.

The IOA had prohibited fishing beyond the three nautical miles area in violation of the calm agreement that allowed fishing within six nautical miles.

The fishermen have complained of scarcity of fish over the past few months after they were banned from fishing at deeper waters.
