Israeli navy attacks fishermen in Gaza northern waters

Israeli gunboats on Saturday morning opened fire at Palestinian fishermen and their boats off the northern coast of the embattled Gaza Strip

According to local sources, several fishermen were on their boats off the shore of al-Sudaniya area in northern Gaza when Israeli naval forces suddenly opened fire at them and forced them to return ashore

Israeli gunboats are around Gaza fishermen almost every day, harassing them, shooting at them, damaging their boats, and making arrests. Sometimes fishermen are injured or killed during gunfire attacks

Under the 1993 Oslo accords, Palestinian fishermen are permitted to fish up to 20 nautical miles off the coast of Gaza, but since then Israel has kept reducing the fishing area gradually to a limit of three nautical miles as part of its blockade on Gaza
