According to Maan news agency the Israeli Navy have fired on Palestinian fishing boats in Gaza injuring three.
Three men have been taken to hospital after the Israeli Navy fired on their fishing boat causing moderate injuries. The Israeli military claims to have no record of the event.
Conditions have been dangerous for Palestinian fishermen fishing off Gaza since Israel imposed a ban on all fishing outside a small perimeter from the shore.
Gaza fishermen staged a sit-in at Gaza’s port this week to protest the hazardous conditions they work under and to call for the removal of the restrictions on fishing imposed by the Israeli military.
The ban is part of Israel’s blockade on Gaza since 2005 when Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was seized by Hamas.
