On Tuesday evening, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats near the shore, west of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.
Media sources said the navy ships fired many live rounds and gas bombs at the fishing boats, forcing them to leave.
They added that the navy also chased several Palestinian fishing boats near the Rafah shore. The attacks did not lead to injuries.
The attacks are part of constant 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.
