Israeli soldiers opened fire, on Monday morning, on several Palestinian farmers in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, while navy ships fired live rounds on fishing boats, in Gaza territorial waters.The Palestinian News Agency (WAFA) has reported that Israeli soldiers, stationed in the Kissufim military base, across the border fence east of Khan Younis, fired many live rounds targeting Palestinian farmers, forcing them to leave their lands.

In addition, Israeli navy ships opened fire on a number of fishing boats, in Gaza territorial waters, only four nautical miles away from the shore, northwest of Gaza city.

The fishers returned to the shore without fishing, to avoid further Israeli violations and assaults.

The army and navy conduct ongoing assaults against Gaza fishers in Gaza waters, including close to the shore, in addition to frequent attacks targeting workers, and farmers, in Palestinian lands, closed to the border fence.
