Israeli soldiers and naval forces attacked, Thursday, Palestinian farmers, shepherds, and fishermen in several parts of the besieged Gaza Strip.
The soldiers, stationed on military towers across the fence, east of the central Gaza Strip, fired many live rounds and gas bombs at Palestinian farmers and shepherds east of Deir al-Balah, the al-Maghazi, and al-Boreij refugee camp.
Also, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds and several shells at Palestinian fishing boats a few nautical miles from the shore of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.
The attacks did not lead to casualties but forced the Palestinians to leave, fearing additional Israeli escalation.
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.
