Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Wednesday at dawn, on a number of small Palestinian fishing boats in Palestinian waters, near the Sudaniyya area, northwest of the Gaza Strip. Eyewitnesses said the soldiers fired several live rounds targeting at least three fishing boats, less the two miles away from the Gaza shore, forcing all fishers back to shore.

The attack is part of ongoing Israeli violations to every ceasefire agreement, mediated by Egypt, and to the Oslo Accords.

There are more than 3800 Palestinian fishers in the Gaza Strip, providing food to dozens of thousands of family members.

Israeli attacks on Gaza fishers led to dozens of casualties, including several fatalities, in addition to dozens of arrests, while the soldiers also confiscated scores of fishing boats.

On Saturday, March 7, a Palestinian fisher was killed by Israeli navy fire, and two others were kidnapped. http://www.imemc.org/article/70831
