GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli gunboats on early Friday morning opened heavy machinegun fire on Palestinian fishing vessels setting sail in northern and southern Gaza Strip.
Local sources said sounds of intermittent machinegun fire have been detected in both areas since the crack of dawn. No injuries were reported in the assault.
The Israeli occupation navy have often attacked Palestinian fishermen and ships off Gaza shores, in a flagrant violation of the Cairo-brokered ceasefire accord signed in the wake of the 2014 Israeli offensive on the besieged coastal enclave.
For their part, Israeli occupation soldiers opened machinegun fire at Palestinian farmers to the north east of Rafah city in southern Gaza on Friday morning.
Local sources said that the soldiers at military watchtowers fired at cultivated land lots with no casualties reported.
