Israeli soldiers fired, on Sunday morning, several rounds of live ammunition at Palestinian shepherds and fishermen in the besieged Gaza Strip.
Media sources said the soldiers, stationed across the perimeter fence east of the al-Qarara town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, fired many live rounds at Palestinian farmers.
They added that the farmers were working on their lands close to the fence when the soldiers fired the live rounds to force them away.
In addition, Israeli navy ships fired live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Gaza.
The attacks are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.
In March of last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
