Israeli Navy Fires on Gaza Fishing Boats

Israeli navy Saturday opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the Gaza coast forcing the boats to return to shore, said local sources.

There were no reports of casualties, however, according to WAFA correspondence.

Despite the signed agreements between Palestinians and Israel, which allow fishermen to go 12 nautical miles inside the Mediterranean Sea, the Israeli navy targets Gaza fishermen almost daily.

Boats cannot venture any further than three nautical miles, which the fishermen say is not enough to catch fish.
