On Saturday morning, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.
Local sources said the navy attacked the boats with live fire and chased them to the shore, although they were within Palestinian waters, not far from the shore in the northern part of the besieged coastal region.
The attack did not cause casualties but caused damage and forced the fishermen to leave in fear of further violations.
It is worth mentioning that, on Saturday dawn, the Israeli army fired missiles targeting two areas in Gaza city and the central part of the coastal region.
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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
