GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli navy forces on Monday opened machinegun fire at Palestinian fishermen in Gaza sea. No casualties have been reported.
Local sources reported that a number of Israeli navy gunboats fired in the morning hours at the Palestinian fishing boats which were sailing in the northern Gaza sea.
The heavy shooting forced the Gazan fishermen to return to shore and end fishing despite sailing within the allowed zone of six nautical miles. No casualties were reported, the sources added.
The attack is another episode in the series of Israeli daily violations of the Cairo-brokered truce accord signed between Israel and Palestinian resistance on August 26, 2014 in the wake of the Israeli offensive on the besieged coastal enclave, which killed over 2,300 Palestinians, mostly civilians.
