Israeli navy boats fired, on Wednesday morning, rounds of live ammunition on a number of Palestinian fishing boats, in territorial waters in the Sudaniyya area, northwest of Gaza City. Eyewitnesses said the navy attacked the fishing boats close to the shore, causing excessive damage, and forcing the fishers to sail back to the shore.

The Israeli navy frequently attacks Palestinian fishers and their boats in Gaza territorial waters, and in many cases while on shore.

The attacks led to excessive damage, in addition to scores of casualties and arrests.

On Monday morning, Israeli gunboats opened fire towards fishermen’s boats in the Gaza Strip, this time off the coasts of Sudaniyya, and Khan Younis.
