Israeli navy ships attacked, on Sunday morning, several fishing boats with live fire, and abducted two fishermen, in Palestinian territorial waters, in the northern past of the Gaza Strip.

Nizar Ayyash, the head of the Palestinian Fishermen Syndicate, said the navy fired dozens of live rounds at fishing boats, and abducted two fishermen, identified as Tareq Abdul-Bari Sultan and Aa’ed Nizar Sultan.

Last year, Israel abducted 39 Palestinian fishermen, including some who were shot prior to their detention, in addition to killing two, and wounding fourteen others.

The attack is part of constant Israeli violations against the fishermen, workers and farmers, in several parts of the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip.

The assaults violate various agreements, including the ceasefire deal which was reach on August 26th, 2014, after the Israeli war on Gaza, which led to the death is at least at 2137, including 578 children, 264 women, and 103 elderly, while more than 11100, including 3374 children, 2088 women and 410 elderly, have been injured.

As part of Oslo agreement, signed between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on September 13, 1993, the Palestinians are supposed to fish and sail within twenty nautical miles from the Gaza shore.

Israel repeatedly and unilaterally reduced the fishing zone to three nautical miles, and later increased it to nine miles, then reduced it to six.

On Sunday at dawn, the soldiers abducted twelve Palestinians, including one woman, from their homes in the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem.
