Israeli soldiers fired, Saturday, many live rounds and concussion grenades at Palestinian farmers near Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, while Israeli navy ships attacked fishing boats near Gaza city.

Media sources said the soldiers fired many live rounds and concussion grenades into Palestinian lands, close to the perimeter fence, east of Khan Younis.

The attack did not lead to casualties but forced the Palestinian farmers to leave their lands in fear of further escalation.

In addition, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats with live fire and water cannons, only three nautical miles from the shore in the Sudaniyya area, west of Gaza city.

Eyewitnesses said the attack caused damage to at least one boat and forced the Palestinians back to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.

The attacksĀ are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially theĀ fishermen,Ā farmers,Ā shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and have led to dozens of casualties, includingĀ fatalities, in addition to serious property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting theĀ fishermen.
